JUST IN: Buhari’s Minister, Nwajiuba, Buys N100m APC Presidential Form
Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, Minister of State for Education, became the first of several hopefuls to collect copies of the All Progressives Congress’s presidential nomination and expression of interest forms on Wednesday in Abuja.
The Minister of State reportedly received both forms after a group of Nigerians pooled the N100 million costs, according to data seen by The PUNCH.
According to article 84(12) of the recently adopted Electoral Act 2022, Buhari’s ministers running for elective offices must retire from their existing positions before the APC primary elections, which will take place on May 30 and June 1, 2022.
Nwajiuba isn’t the only minister on the list; Transport Minister Rotimi Amaechi, as well as other Presidential appointees, are running for other federal and state positions.
