How Money Made From APC N100 Forms Would Be Used – Nabana

APC Confirms Stolen Money At Its National Secretariat, Gives More Details

A former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Yekini Nabena on Tuesday revealed how the ruling party intends to spend the fund realised from the sales of its N100 million presidential forms.

The APC chieftain claimed that the ruling party would use the fund to run its activities rather than pick from money meant for the government. Nabena stated this in an interview with Daily Post. The former official of the APC while speaking on the view that the nomination forms will encourage corruption, said Nigerians can not use that as a measure for corruption. He further stated that if Nigerians are looking for corrupt people they should go to the civil service. The APC Chieftain added that some of these presidential aspirants are paying a huge amount of money because they have not contributed to the party in years. Nabena in his statement said, “You should understand that corruption is not measured by that, even those that have some money like N5, 000 and N10, 000 are even more corrupt, you understand; you can’t measure N100 million as if it’s corruption. “Even the smaller people like the civil servants with a salary of N40, 000 are even more corrupt than the wealthy people; you can’t use that as a measurement for corruption. “Running a political party is not rice and beans; we can’t go to the government to demand money, so we use the money from the forms to run the party. “The adverts we do in the media daily, do you know how much it costs us? So where do you think we get the money from? How do we sustain the party? So, we can’t measure corruption based on what people are saying. “Don’t look at it from that point; if you are looking for corrupt people, you should go to the civil service, where you will see the corrupt elements. What about people who can’t pay such an amount and are given appointments and they are corrupt? If you are born a witch, you are a witch; if you are wicked, it will be in you. So, we should not use this N100 million to describe anybody as corrupt. “Some of them have not participated or contributed since 2014 till now; look at Bakare, has he contributed or participated in the party? Has he contributed in any way to the party? And now he wants to be the party’s flagbearer; you people should also look at this from a different point. “The money we are returning to the people, the adverts we are running, where do you think we get the money from? Do you think we are like PDP that will dip our hands into the government’s purse? This is the difference between PDP and APC; we return the money to the people.”
