After the heavy criticisms that followed the 25 million naira nomination form fee for the Imo State governorship ticket, the Labour party has this afternoon reduced the amount from 25 million to 15 million.
This was disclosed by Kenneth Okonkwo the spokesman for the Obi/Datti campaign council.
He disclosed this through his Twitter account.
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.
