The controversial Social media influencer cum politician, Mr Adamu Garba has back off from the presidential race after he failed to raise the required 100M naira for form.



Adamu said he managed to raise over 82 million naira but the huge amount of money make him to back off.

He said, “We believe this action is capable of over-financialising our political space, institutionalizing vote-buying, encouraging corruption, and completely obliteration the youth and the poor from participation.

“When we raised this concern on several media fora, the party, however, believed the high cost of form will separate the serious contenders from unserious ones.

“This goes contrary to our belief that you can only separate serious contenders from unserious ones by the competency, capacity, credibility, strength of the programme, workable solutions, and sellable candidate to Nigeria through rapid intraparty debates and other high-level criteria reviews that can ensure we present a better leader for future for Nigeria.

“We further discovered that even if we went ahead to obtain the form, the party has foreclosed the plan for primary election because of the presence of the request for a Letter of Voluntary withdrawal on page 18 of the nomination form.

“I cannot, in all honesty, rally funds from my supporters in the hope that we will be having a primary election, then sign a postdated letter of voluntary withdrawal from the contest.”
