The Presidential candidate of the Abundant Nigeria Renewal Party (ANRP) Tope Fasua, has berated the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for selling its Presidential nomination form for N45 million.
Wondering where young aspirants could have gotten the said amount to purchase the form, Fasua said one must be a criminal to produce N45 million for a nomination form.
Fasua, who is the founder and CEO of Global Analytics Consulting Limited, made this comment on Hard Copy, a program on Channels Television on Friday night.
Speaking on the “Not Too Young To Run” bill, the Presidential candidate said: “Look at what happened in APC, you must be a criminal to produce N45 million for nomination form”.
