Ahead of Tuesday’s deadline for the sale of nomination and expression of interest forms, there has been a rush by aspirants as Senate President Ahmad Lawan, obtained his copy on Monday in Abuja.
The International Conference Centre, Abuja, was agog with activities as several aspirants vying for various electoral offices stormed the venue to obtain their forms at the last minute.
Some political associates of the Senate President were at the ICC to obtain forms saying Nigeria needs a “Nigerian president” and not one given to ethnic tendencies.
Leader of the group, Sam Nkire, told journalists that “We are not here on our own, we have his backing. Even though friends and brothers contributed to purchase this form for him but he has given us the go-ahead.”
