Group Raised 100M for Minister to Buy APC Form
A youth-driven political pressure group named Project Nigeria has gathered N100 million for the Minister of State for Education, Hon. Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, to purchase the Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms for the All Progressives Congress presidential primary (APC).
The Minister confirmed this in an interview with newsmen, Nwajiuba stated that he had been informed by the organisation that over 1,000 people had paid over N100 million to purchase the APC presidential forms for him.
The Minister, who expressed delight that the organization was able to raise the funds, stated that the outcome of his meeting with the Project Nigeria Group and other stakeholders throughout the country would determine if he would run for the coveted job.
"In my case, I have the unique chance of being pushed by a wide spectrum of Nigerians; young people and others from various regions of Nigeria, who are donating both money and time to advance this project," Nwajiuba said.
They've taken on the task of figuring out where to get the money while relieving me of the stress.
One of them informed me that they are currently exceeding the figure by a few fractions.
"There are over 1,000 contributors from all around the world." "All I was told was that they were ready." I've tried to meet with them, but they only want to meet with me once they get the forms."
"I don't want to answer that question until they (members of the Project Nigeria Group) come," he said when asked if he would run for president and when he plans to proclaim his desire.
