PRP pegs presidential nomination form at N10 million
The Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) says its nomination fee for a presidential aspirant is N10,000,000.
The party said nomination fees in circulation, which peg N500,000 and N200,000 for presidential and governorship positions respectively, are fraudulent, asking the public to disregard it.
PRP chairman Falalu Bello made this known in a statement in Abuja on Monday.
“N100,000 and N80,000 for Senatorial and House of Representatives; while N70,000 is for House of Assembly seats,” said Mr Bello. “The attention of the PRP has been drawn to a fraudulent circular designed and circulated by some duplicitous elements that intend to scam unsuspecting members of the public.”
He added, “For the record, this crooked circular did not emanate from the PRP. It is a handiwork of mischief makers who are bent on creating confusion so as to defraud unsuspecting members of the public. The party, therefore, cautions the public on the said publication.”
Mr Bello explained that in compliance with the notice of the 2023 general elections released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the PRP, on April 16, published guidelines for the sale and cost of its forms.
PRP charges N100,000 for the House of Assembly ticket; N250,000 for the House of Representatives; N1.5 million for the Senate; N2.5 million for governor, and N10 million for the presidential ticket.
“It was further clarified in the guidelines as released by the party that in addition to the cost of nomination forms, each aspirant will be required to pay five per cent of the nomination form fee for the expression of interest form,” he added. “All aspirants living with disabilities shall be offered nomination and expression of interest forms of the party free of charge.”
The PRP said female aspirants would be charged only 50 per cent of the stipulated costs for nomination and expression of interest forms
