Association Wants Anyone Who buys APC Presidential Form Arrested, Prosecuted

Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA), has condemned the decision of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for pegging her presidential form at N100 million.

The Association maintained that only kidnappers and political thieves can raise such amount to try their political fate.

HURIWA therefore called for an arrest of such wantons, saying that legally earned money cannot be spent on APC expression of interest form and nomination form.

In a statement signed by Emmanuel Onwubiko, the Association said anyone seen with such amount to obtain APC presidency form should be arrested.

Onwubiko said such a person should be handed over to Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) or Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) for prosecution.

The statement reads but in parts; “This same APC government is unable to meet the funding obligations for federal universities and thereby left millions of students of public schools to roam around in their homes due to industrial strike by university teachers (ASUU) for over two months, yet the politicians have hidden enough stolen cash to buy presidential forms at N100 million each.

“It is a shame that those who seek to govern Nigeria are made to cough up so much money to purchase forms just to signpost their original intention as persons whose only objective would be to first recoup their huge investments and to further impoverish the citizenry.

“We urge Nigerians to initiate citizen’s arrest of anyone who buys the APC Presidential form at the rate of N100 million so the relevant law enforcement agencies are handed over these suspects to explain their source of such huge funds,” it said.
