Yahaya Bello Pays N100m For APC Nomination Form

 Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello , has showed he is serious about contesting for President.

NAIJANEWSNG reports that he on Tuesday, paid the required N100 million for the expression of interest and nomination forms.

Spokesperson of the Yahaya Bello Presidential Campaign Organisation, Yemi Kolapo , on Tuesday disclosed this in a press statement.

According to Kolapo, Yahaya Bello paid the N100 million on Tuesday morning and will be at the APC secretariat in Abuja on Wednesday to pick his form.

The Director-General of the Campaign Organisation, Hafsat Abiola-Costello, confirmed this to PREMIUM TIMES on Tuesday.

Mr Bello had formally declared his intention to run for president on April 2 at Eagle Square in Abuja.

While declaring his interest to contest, Mr Bello promised to create 20 million millionaires, if elected.

The governor will complete his second term in 2024.

It will be recalled that the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party had released a new date for the sales of forms, after failing to meet up with the initial date set by the National Executive Council (NEC).

The date was shifted from April 23 to April 26.

The NEC also set N100 million as the cost of its presidential nomination and expression of interest forms.

The price for the forms has been heavily criticised.

This paper had reported how the exorbitant nomination and expression of interest forms of the party will contribute to high level of corruption in Nigeria, despite the change mantra of the APC ruling party

Meanwhile, there are other presidential aspirants with whom Mr Bello would contend for the APC ticket.

They include a former governor of La Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige and Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State.
