“The sale of forms earlier slated for tomorrow (Saturday) has been postponed. No date has been fixed for the commencement of the exercise. The NWC will determine the new date on Monday.
“The postponement became necessary following the inability of the contractor to deliver the forms. As we talk now (Friday evening), the printer has yet to deliver the forms. We hope the exercise will commence next week as the contractor is expected to deliver by the weekend.”
Buhari’s minister speaks on plans to raise N100m for APC presidential nomination form
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari’s minister for labour and employment, Chris Ngige had hinted how he would be raising money to purchase the APC presidential nomination form.
Ngige who was still in a long and inclusive negotiation with the striking Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) says he intends to spend N50 million on purchasing the form.
The former Anambra state governor stated that the party’s decision to peg the party nomination form at N100million cannot be questioned stating that the party’s NEC cannot be crucified.
“It does not matter whether I am happy with the price or not. That is what my party NEC fixed, I won’t crucify them.”
