The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), on Tuesday, said it would cost N6million to purchase a form for the upcoming governorship elections in Kogi and Bayelsa as against N1.5million earlier published.
National Director of Publicity of the party, Mr Ifeanacho Ogbuejiofor, stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.
Ogbuejiofor said the Expression of Interest Form would cost N1million while the Nomination Form would be obtained at the cost of N5million.

He said that sale of the form commenced on Monday, Aug. 24, adding that the forms were to be obtained at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja.
Ogbuejiofor said the party’s primaries for the Kogi and Bayelsa governorship elections would be conducted on Sept. 10 and Sept. 25, respectively.

The spokesman said APGA would participate in the elections, adding that the party would cooperate with INEC to ensure credible polls.
