The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) will begin the sale of Nomination and Expression of Interest forms on Tuesday.
A source in the APC’s media office in Abuja confirmed the development on National Television on Sunday. It was gathered that the exercise, which was scheduled to begin on Saturday, was postponed due to some logistics and administrative challenges.
This is coming four days after the party fixed the fees for the nomination forms — presidential hopefuls are expected to pay 100 million naira while those for governorship will pay 50 million naira.
The price of the nomination form for the state House of Assembly was pegged at 2 million naira, the House of Representatives is 10 million naira, and that for the Senate is 20 million naira.
While many Nigerians have described the fees as exorbitant in the light of current economic realities, the APC spokesperson Mr Felix Morka said the decision was justified.
