There have been outrage against the exorbitant cost of forms for aspirants vying for various political offices of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
 Concerned Nigerians have said that the ruling party is mortgaging the positions to the highest bidders to the detriment of good Nigerians who are willing to offer selfless service.
The N100m, N50m for presidential and governorship aspirants respectively announced by the National Executive Committee (NEC) on Wednesday was followed by the party stakeholders organizing another fresh congress to get delegates that will elect candidates at state and national levels.
The development however, has been condemned by an Adamawa  concerned party Loyalist, saying that that the decision of the NEC will only kill APC in 2023.
Danjuma Adamu Jimeta said that  as  a loyal party man who has been a founding member from Nassarawo Ward,  the national leaders have only succeeded in placing the party on the verge of collapse with the new plans.
According to him, “the party  already has aspirants working on plans for the initial delegates on the ground,  organizing a new congress to elect who flies the party’s flag for 2023, may be a cancerous and disastrous decision against the party.
He called on all relevant stakeholders to look into the fresh desire of the party critically with  the general interest of the party at large.
Danjuma also said he doesn’t think the date scheduled for the delegation to hold in less than one month, will allow a good process of the exercise to take place.
He advised that  the primaries should be conducted using the initial status quo with existing delegates electing the state and national candidates.
He expressed worries that changing or replacing delegates will put the party in a rancorous situation and the political commotion may plunder the party into a serious crisis building to the 2023 elections.
“I do not see the wisdom in having another congress that will elect state and national delegates. What happened to the existing delegates? There are aspirants on the ground using their strategies with the existing delegates, this will mean a lot of work to have another game plan for the new delegates.
“I don’t think this is good for the party and it will kill the party if care is not taken,” Danjuma said.
