One of the burning issues has been the cost of party nomination forms. I can vividly recall President Muhammadu Buhari complaining about their exorbitance in 2015 when the presidential nomination form was N27.5 million, confessing that he had to take a bank loan to purchase it. We need to look at this trend because the highest cost of a presidential nomination form in America, where we borrowed our system from, is about $40,000. That’s less than N24 million. In some states, it could be as low as $1,000, and that is less than N600,000.
