SocialMediaTrends: How Nigerians are reacting after APC pegged presidential form at N100m
Nigerians on social media reacted massively to the resolution of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to sell its presidential form for 100 million naira.
Ripples Nigeria gathered that APC National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morgan, made the announcement today Wednesday at a briefing with reporters in Abuja.
Some were of the opinion that the form was too costly while others believed it was one of the reasons aspirants go to any length to win elections.
The breakdown of the presidential form is as follows:
Expression of Interest form: N30 million
The nomination form: N70 million.
See how Nigerians are reacting:

This Adamu Garba has no iota of shame. So, it is now he realizes that Twitter has power. If folks on Twitter wanted to raise him that #100m, they can do it. However, you can't come and claim support on a platform that you sued, and lashed out against during #EndSARS
