So far, at least 20 aspirants have purchased the forms. While 19 of the aspirants paid N100 million each, the only female among them, Uju Kennedy, paid 50% in line with the ruling party's policy.

With this, the APC would have raked in about 1.95 billion from the sales of the presidential forms alone.

While some bought the forms themselves, some like CBN governor, Godwin Emefiele, and AfDB president, Akinwunmi Adesina, got theirs donated to them by some groups even though they are yet to declare interest.
