2019 Presidency: Reduce nomination fee to N18, 000 - Aspirant tells APC

A Presidential aspirant under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC }, Barr. Christmas Akpodiete, has urged the National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, to reduce the Presidential nomination fees to N18,000 or strike it out completely to conform with the position of a decided case law.
The aspirant, who made the call yesterday in a letter to Oshiomhole and the National Working Committee of the APC, said that the right to vote and be voted for is a constitutional guaranteed right which will be breeched if his party, the APC refuses to jettison the nomination fees.

Delivering the letter personally at the APC headquarters in Abuja, Akpodiete said: “The letter is a plea to the party chairman and the national working committee to comply with a court decision which Late Gani Fawehinmi,SAN, and Femi Falana were part of.”

Meanwhile, the Director of Legal and Communication of the Presidential aspirant’s campaign organisation, Barr. F. B Ehikioya, told reporters: “After July 10, if the party refuses to respond, we may be heading to court.”

DAILY POST recalls that penultimate week, Akpodiete declared his intention to contest the APC Presidential primaries and asked President Muhammadu Buhari to step down for him.
