An aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adamu Garba, has withdrawn from contesting the party’s presidential ticket.

Briefing newsmen on Monday in Abuja, Garba said he withdrew from the race due to the high cost of obtaining APC expression of interest and nomination forms for presidency and the cost of running for the office of president.

According to him, pegging the presidential form at N100 million would promote financialisation and commercialization of the country’s political space and that his decision not to obtain the APC’s presidential form followed due consultation with his campaign team, which, he said, had generated N83.2 million in private and online donations.

He stated that the fund generated from all quarters would be returned to the donor, but without staing how he plans to do that.

Garba also said his next political move would be announced in coming days, as according to him, “We believe this action is capable of over financialising our political space, institutionalizing vote-buying, encouraging corruption, and complete obliteration the youth and the poor from participation.
