Presidential hopeful, Adamu Garba has announced that he will not be joining the contest for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential form.

The controversial politicians made the announcement in a thread on his Twitter account on Tuesday evening.

It was gathered that the withdrawal was following the donation of over N83 millions by Nigerians for him to purchase the APC expression of interest and nomination forms which would cost N100 million.

In the post on Twitter, Adamu Garba wrote: “I write to notify Nigerians that after high-level deliberation with our campaign team, we have concluded that we will not be obtaining the expression of interest and nomination form for the office of the President of Nigeria under the platform of the APC.

“Our generation should not set an example as part of the people that supported the financialization/commercialization of our political space, especially the public office, considering the prohibitive cost of the nomination forms.

“We believe this action is capable of over-financializing our political space, institutionalizing vote-buying, encouraging corruption, and complete obliteration the youth and the poor from participation.”
