The All Progressives Congress, APC, has explained why the prices of its nomination forms are on the high side.
Since Tuesday when the party announced the sale of forms for the 2019 elections, it has received lashes mainly from the opposition.
The party has come to the defence to say it would not use public fund to conduct its elections.
Speaking on the matter, acting National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Yekini Nabena, told reporters in Abuja on Wednesday that unlike the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration would never betray public trust because it wanted to contest in an election.
He said, “Everybody knows that this administration under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari will never put its hands into the public treasury to take money for elections.
“Unlike the PDP which went to the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation and got public money from Diezani Allison- Madueke and the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, we will not do that.
“We have decided to use what we get from the sale of forms to run our elections. I wonder why the PDP has made this their business.”
