Lawyer Femi Falana Speaks Out, N100m Nomination form feee with minimum wage at N30k is immoral.

N100m presidential nomination form fee set by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), describing it as “immoral” since the country’s minimum is N30,000.

 

Speaking on Channels TV, Falana said it was insensitive and illegal for the ruling party to fix its nomination forms at such an outrageous amount. Last week, APC fixed the price for its presidential nomination forms at N100m while the PDP pegged its presidential form fee at N40m.

 

“Those outrageous nomination fees are immoral, insensitive, and illegal. Again, section 42 of the Nigerian constitution provides that nobody shall be subjected to any restriction or discrimination on the basis of class, fortune, sex, or whatever,” the constitutional lawyer added.

If these parties are saying they want to exclude unserious people, that if you cannot mobilise N100 million or N40 million, you cannot attain some positions in your country, that is discriminatory and illegal.

No restriction can be erected to prevent you from participating in the politics of the country. You are now saying that the politics of the country is for moneybags or fat cats. That is against the spirit and the letters of the constitution.

The immorality of it is that we have over 90 million Nigerians that have been classified poor. In a country where the minimum wage is about N30,000 and it is not paid by some states, you can’t say you are collecting N100 million or N40 million to purchase a form.”
