As preparations heat up ahead of the June 23, 2018, national convention of the All Progressives Congress, the party has revealed that each aspirant to the chairmanship position will pay N500,000 for the nomination form.
A member of the media sub-committee of the convention, Ms Aderinsola Abiola, disclosed this in Abeokuta on Monday while briefing journalists about the forthcoming convention.
She said the date of the national convention had to be shifted from the earlier date of June 2 to June 23, 2018, because of the Ramadan fast.
Abiola, who is one of the media aides to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, said those vying for positions in the National Working Committee would pay N250,000 each for their nomination form.
Abiola said the APC would solve all the issues involving parallel congresses in some of its states through its reconciliation and harmonisation committee.
She said, “We have been sent to our various zones to talk about the forthcoming national convention of the All Progressives Congress.
“The chairmanship has been zoned to the South-South, while other positions had been equally zoned. So it depends on where comes from that will determine the position vied for.
“For the chairmanship position, to pick the nomination form each aspirant will pay N500,000, while others in the National Working Committee will pay N250,000 each for their nomination form.
“We had earlier slated the national convention for June 2 but it had to be shifted to June 23, 2018, because of the Ramadan fast. We want to give each aspirant ample chance to attend.”
