JUST IN: Adamu Garba withdraws from presidential contest after collecting N83 million from Nigerians


Adamu Garba has withdrawn from the presidential race scheduled for next year after raising N83 million from Nigerians.

Mr Garba said the N100 million for nomination forms of the ruling All Progressives Congress is exploitative and may not encourage good governance.


The development comes after the politician raised over N83 million in donations from Nigerians. 

“We have recorded the sum of N81,750,000.00 in private donations and N1,457, 794.70 in online donations. Totaling N83,207,794.70. 

“We sincerely, immensely, and graciously thank everyone for these wonderful contributions and donations, including those who made theirs anonymously.


“We, however, request that all those who donated online and who require a refund send an email with evidence of payment on the attached document to assure you of a complete refund upon request,” Mr Garba said.

He admonished the APC to improve its democratic credentials by charging reasonable amounts for its forms.

“The party, from its convention to this moment, has taken several steps that may dent our democratic credentials as we venture into the third decade of our uninterrupted democracy. 

“These steps, if not changed, could reverse the gains we make over time and return us back to centrist, sycophantic, patronage-driven unitary systems, a situation we must avoid at all costs in the interest of the future of Nigeria.”

My vision is driven by the conviction that Governments primarily have responsibilities to perform and must be held to account on improved conditions that meet basic standards of living; employment generation and livelihoods sustainability; whilst balancing socio-cultural peculiarities of the various constituencies in the new world order.
