The N100m Presidential Form Far Higher Than The 4-year Salaries Of Buhari And Osinbajo. Full Details Of  President And Vice Salaries Finally Revealed

With the current salary of the President, which is put at N14.058m yearly or N1.171m monthly, according to a breakdown by the Revenue Mobilisation, Allocation and Fiscal Commission, it means that the N100m APC nomination form is the salary of the President for about 85 months or seven years.

For the VP, who currently earns N12.126m yearly or N1.01m monthly, the sum is his salary for 99 months or eight years and three months.

Reacting to the cost of the nomination form, rights group, the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA), urged the EFCC and the ICPC to probe the source of wealth of any presidential aspirant who picks the APC presidential nomination and expression of interest forms.

N100m Presidential Form

The group said only corrupt politicians would afford that much for a nomination form.

“Anyone who buys the nomination form at such a scandalous amount should be arrested and handed over to law enforcement agencies such as EFCC or ICPC or the Nigeria Police Force for investigation on the source of the money,” said HURIWA.

“We only just finished carpeting the opposition PDP for bastardising the process of nominating its presidential candidate by inflating the cost of its nomination form to N40m, little did we know that the politicians who run the Federal Government and have ruined the national economy will peg theirs at the extravagant cost of N100m.

“This same APC government is unable to meet the funding obligations for federal universities and thereby has left millions of students of public schools to roam around in their homes due to industrial strike by university teachers for over two months.

“It is a shame that those who seek to govern Nigeria are made to cough out 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.”
