The All Progressives Congress (APC) has disclosed why it sold its nomination and expression of interest forms for the presidency and other elective positions to all who came to purchase them.
Speaking during an interview on Channels TV on Wednesday evening, APC Spokesman Barr. Felix Morka was asked why groups and individuals were allowed to buy forms for some aspirants.
"If I believe very strongly in you that you’ll make a good President…you know, I’ll purchase. As at the time of purchase, there are no filters.
"You come, indicate the office you want to purchase a form for, make the payment, payment is confirmed and the form is given to you.
"It’s at the point of submission that the actual verification begins, where we begin to check all of the requirements, whether you actually met those requirements or not, and all of the things the guideline set out as eligibility to run.
"It is at the point of submission actually that we begin to do the checklist of those things that should be there, but otherwise, at the point of purchase, we sell the forms", he answered.
