The labour party has cut down the cost of it’s Governorship nomination form. The party said interested aspirant would now cough out N15million instead of the earlier announced N25million.
The reduction, NewsSpecng learnt was as a result of the pressure mounted by supporters of the party, who called for the reduction of the party nomination form.
The supporters called on the party leadership to cut down the cost because the sum of 25m was too costly and the party will appear not different from the other parties it’s trying to rescue power from.
In response to this, the party released a statement through Kenneth Okonkwo
Spokesperson, Labour Party, Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Council on Tuesday.
The statement reads:
“After due consultation with all the relevant stakeholders in the Party, and taking into consideration the overwhelming interest of Nigerians in our Party,and the necessity to birth a new Nigeria, and in view of the prevailing high cost of things in Nigeria,which the incompetent APC ruling party has foisted on all Nigerians, the Labour Party, as a listening Party, has taken note of the suggestions of Nigerians that a party of the working class Nigerians should settle for a nomination fee of not more than N15m for the post of a Governor”
“In line with our avowed disposition to carry Nigerians along in what we do, the Party has decided to review the cost of nomination forms downwards for all positions taking into consideration the suggested amount of N15m for the post of Governor”
“We must move together to salvage our country from incompetent and dishonest leadership of the old order”
