Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress’s (APC’s) National Leader, has picked the ruling party’s nomination and expression of interest forms.
On Friday afternoon in Abuja, the presidential hopeful collected the N100 million forms.
Tinubu’s loyalists picked up the paperwork on his behalf while he is in Saudi Arabia on pilgrimage.
Emeka Nawjuiba, the Minister of State for Education; David Umahi, the Governor of Ebonyi State; and Yahaya Bello, the Governor of Kogi State, are among the hopefuls who chose the forms ahead of Tinubu.
The train is leaving the station. No one should stand in the way of progress. Two forms were picked today at the @OfficialAPCNg secretariat.

In the same vein, Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has picked his All Progressives Congress’ nomination form to contest for re-election in 2023.
The form was picked on behalf of the Governor by Hon. James Faleke in Abuja on Friday.
Mr Sanwo-Olu is seeking another four years in office that will expire in 2027.
His re-election efforts are expected to be unchallenged within the APC.
The Governance Advisory Council (GAC), the highest decision-making body of the APC in Lagos, has reportedly endorsed Mr Sanwo-Olu.
