Ahead of the 2023 elections, popular young presidential aspirant, under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adamu Garba, has received donations ranging from N1.00 to over a million naira to enable him procure the party’s nomination form.
PlatinumPost reports that the ruling party had pegged expression of interest/nomination form for its presidential candidate at a whopping sum of N100 million.
On Saturday, Garba, who had earlier expressed surprise over the huge amount of money to obtain the form, appealed for funds from Twitter users in order to purchase the presidential form.
This came in the aftermath of Garba’s fury at the exorbitant amount levelled by the APC on presidential aspirants.
Garba had said, “100m for the form. WOW!”
“If we don’t come together and use our collective power to save this country from the strangulation of the moneybags, we are doing a great disservice to our generation and that of the future.”
The outspoken presidential aspirant released a bank account and appealed to Nigerians to donate towards his ambition to rule the country.
In a Tweet on Sunday, the young politician confirmed that money has poured into the account.
He said: “Since the release of our donor account yesterday, we’ve recorded over 200 transactions, from N1.00 to over N1M. We sincerely do appreciate your commitment to building a better Nigeria.
“Together, we are building a socially inclusive society with our sweat, not our blood.”
