Lawyer Defends APC’s N100m Presidential Nomination Form

An Owerri-based legal prac­titioner and chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Con­gress (APC), Gerry Egemba, has warned those kicking against the party’s stipulated N100 million, nomination and expression of interest forms for its presidential aspirants not to cry wolf where there is none.

He said that since the party had not made the collection of the form compulsory for her members, it was illogi­cal and untenable for people who were not even members of the party to cry foul over the measure.

Speaking to newsmen in Owerri, the lawyer argued that the party’s N100 million nomination forms did not amount to commercialising the nation’s politics, given the current value of the nai­ra and the need for the party to take care of its numerous financial problems.

“Our people should stop crying more than the be­reaved. Over 20 aspirants have so far picked their forms and I have neither seen, nor heard any aspirant complain­ing about it.”
