APC Speaks On Members Condemnation Of Nomination Fees


The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said it was yet to receive any formal complaint about nominations fees from any of its members or aspirants.

The party last week proposed N1m for State Assembly aspirants, N3.8m for House of Representatives aspirants, N8.5 for Senate aspirants, N22.5m for governorship aspirants and N55.5m for presidential nomination forms for the 2019 general election.

The fees have sparked protest and members are positing that elective positions should not be for only moneybags.

Reacting, APC National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, explained that what the National Working Committee (NWC) presented before National Executive Committee (NEC) was a proposal which was being considered.

Nabena told Punch, “To the best of my knowledge, the party has not received any complain from any of our aspirants.

“I know that what we have are proposals being considered and NEC gave that responsibility to the NWC.”

Meanwhile, an internal crisis is brewing in the ruling party over the mode of primaries.

On Sunday, Nabena said that the party had received information that some members were working against the NEC resolutions.

The spokesman noted: “The identities of those plotting such meetings have been identified and unless they desist from such they will be dealt with in line with the Party’s Constitution at the appropriate time.

“The NWC will resist any attempt to disrupt the current peace and harmony prevailing in our great Party after the exit of some members of our Party.

“We urge any member who is not satisfied with the decisions of the Party to utillize channels provided by the Party’s constitution to air their views.”
