Dr Iyorchia Ayu, the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has asked anti-graft agencies to go after any presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who purchases the N100 million nomination and Expression of Interest forms.
Ayu said with the exorbitant price of the forms, the party was still ready to inflict more pains on Nigerians.
In a statement through his SA on Communication and Strategy, Simon Imobo-Tswam, Ayu said, the â€œpegging of her (APC) nomination forms at N100m, N50m, N20m etc casts the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the image of rogues and hypocrites.
â€œNigerians can all see what the APC is: a fragmented alliance put together to capture power and inflict maximum pain on Nigerians, including their own members.
â€œNigerians will recall how in 2014, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, now President and leader of the APC, told Nigerians that he had to borrow N27m to buy his nomination form. The same man, as leader of his party, has now sanctioned the sale of the same forms at N100m! I am told thatâ€™s an increase of N370 percent.
â€œBut in 2014, the PDP was in power and the economy was still booming. The incompetent APC presidency has now run the economy aground, making Nigeria the â€œPoverty Capital of the World.â€
