APC begins sale of nomination forms

The All Progressives Congress (APC) will begin the sale of expression of interest and nomination forms for various elective positions Tuesday, 26th April, 2022.

The party had scheduled the commencement of the process for Saturday, 23rd April, 2022, but was postponed.

But a notice issued on Monday, by the National Organising Secretary, Suleiman Arugungu, said the sales of the forms would begin on April 26 and end on May 6.

National Publicity Secretary of the party, Felix Morka, who confirmed the sale of forms on Monday, said, “We are set to commence sale tomorrow (Tuesday). The guideline for the exercise will soon be released on our platform. While the forms for the State House of Assembly will be sold at the State level nationwide, others will be sold here at the national secretariat.”

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the party has, therefore, directed organising secretaries from the 36 States to collect forms for aspirants vying for the State House of Assembly positions.

The APC presidential aspirants are expected to pay N100 million to buy the expression of interest and nomination forms, while governorship hopefuls will pay N50 million.

The price of forms for persons seeking to contest for seats in state houses of assembly was pegged at N2 million, while the house of representatives is N10 million and the senate is N20 million.

The party fixed May 10 as the last day for the submission of completed forms.

The ruling party also said aspirants for the state houses of assembly and governorship will be screened on May 12; those aspiring to hold seats in the house of representatives and senate will be screened on May 13, and those seeking to clinch the party’s presidential ticket will be screened on May 14.

The primaries for governorship, state houses of assembly, house of representatives, and senate are May 18, 20, 22 and 24, respectively.

No date has been fixed for the presidential primary, according to the schedule released by Argung
