2023: AAC Declares Nomination Forms For All Elective Positions Free

The African Action Congress (AAC) has announced that all Expressions of Interest and Nomination forms for the party’s elected posts are free.

According to Anaedoonline.ng, the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) approved the decision on April 24 in Abuja, the country’s capital.

The party’s spokesperson, Femi Adeyeye, said in a statement issued on Thursday that the free declaration of nomination papers came after an evaluation of the country’s economic challenges.

Adeyeye went on to say that the move is to ensure that all intelligent, financially stable, and capable Nigerians desiring change are not left out and may run for office on the party’s platform.

The statement reads: “The African Action Congress seizes this medium to announce to members of the party and the general public its resolution reached at its meeting of April 24, 2022, one of which is to declare free for all positions, the expression of interest and nomination forms,” the statement reads.

“With a maddening inflation rate of 18 percent, unemployment at 33.3 percent, youth unemployment at 53.4 percent, underemployment at 51 percent, Dollar to Naira exchange rate at 599 Naira to 1 Dollar, hike in electricity and other tariffs, workers’ minimum wage of N30,000 which in reality is barely paid, it is near impossible to find brilliant, financially upright and competent change-seeking Nigerians who would pay exorbitant and illegal fees such as the APC’s and PDP’s, just so as to contest in an election.

“As the (Muhammadu) Buhari regime has priced education, quality healthcare and other social services from the reach of the poor, it is clearer now more than ever, that it has priced participatory democracy so far from the reach of genuine change-seeking but poor people.

“The downward review from the AAC NWC, to the point of declaring free for all positions, came after a clinical assessment of the economic woes caused by the unfortunate Buhari regime.

“We understand that for inclusive democracy to be kept alive in our society, even the poorest among us must not be disenfranchised through the backdoor- the money politics the evil twin, APC and PDP are known for.”
