“On Wednesday, April 27, 2022, a sum of $50,000 was reported lost by an individual around the entrance gate of the National Secretariat of the party,” the statement reads.
“To be clear, the lost money does not belong to the Party. In any event, the fee for the said forms is set and denominated in Naira not US Dollars.
“The loss is neither connected with proceeds of sale of forms nor with relocation of the venue for the collection of Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms from the secretariat grounds to the International Conference Centre.”
“As widely advertised and reported in major news outlets, all purchases of forms are payable to designated bank accounts of the party,” the statement added.
The party added that the reason its shifted the venue for the collection of forms to the International Convention Centre (ICC), was to ease the heavy human and vehicular traffic around the secretariat caused by those who had thronged the place for their forms.
