2023: People Buying Forms For Presidential Aspirants Can’t Pay Rent – Ken Nnamani
A former Senate President, Ken Nnamani has said that most of those claiming to have purchased forms for Presidential aspirants couldn’t pay their rent.
Some of the 2023 Presidential aspirants in APC and PDP had claimed their forms were purchased by support groups.
However, Nnamani described the trend as “a big lie”, noting that most of those behind the trend can’t pay rent.
Speaking with AriseTV, the All Progressives Congress, APC, Presidential aspirant, said: “Our history is replete with reluctant leaders. This concept of collecting forms by proxy — people who go and collect forms for someone. We are talking about serious business; leading a country as complicated and complex as Nigeria requires someone who is prepared for the primetime. It does not require somebody who is being persuaded to go. It means the person is not even ready.
“The discussion so far as being on people for who shadow groups have gone to obtain forms and claim to have contributed money for somebody. But if you look at those buying forms for people, some of them appeared to be having difficulty paying their house rent. We are starting on a wrong footing –telling lies. Anybody who is serious about contesting should go and buy the form and not send people while claiming reluctance.
“The shadowy group going about saying they are purchasing forms for people is a laughing situation. It’s a big lie, and it should be discouraged.”
