The former military Head of State, Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, on Thursday became the second presidential aspirant to pick the expression of interest and nomination forms of the All Progressives Congress after his counterpart Atiku Abubakar.
Buhari, who paid the required N27.5m in Abuja was handed the forms by the party’s national chairman, John Oyegun a day after he made his declaration public before a mammoth crowd at the Eagle Square Abuja.
The former military head of state however made it clear that no one bought his form for him.
“I do not want to ask anyone to pay for my nomination form, i always want to pay for the forms myself, even during the last elections I have paid it myself”. he stated.
Oyegun handed over the forms to Buhari after former Bayelsa State Governor, Timipre Sylva, handed over a Union Bank cheque of N27.5m on behalf of Buhari to the National Organising Secretary of the party, Senator Osita Izunaso.
The chairman tells Buhari that “the 27 million is to separate the men from the boys”.
Buhari was at the party office of the APC alongside some key supporters including the former minister of the FCT, Mallam Nasir El-rufai.
