Former Senate President, Ken Nnamani has dismissed reports about a certain group purchasing the presidential form for a particular candidate as lies.
This is coming days after news broke out that Miyetti Allah bought the N100M Presidential nomination form for ex-president, Goodluck Jonathan to contest in the APC primaries.
Speaking to Arise TV, Nnamani tagged this rumoured move as a laughable stunt while stating that even some members of the group claiming to have purchased the form are struggling to pay their house rent.
“Our history is replete with reluctant leaders. This concept of collecting forms by proxy, people who go and collect forms for someone. We are talking about serious business; leading a country as complicated and complex as Nigeria requires someone who is prepared for the primetime.
It does not require somebody who is being persuaded to go. It means the person is not even ready.
The discussion so far as being on people for who shadow groups have gone to obtain forms and claim to have contributed money for somebody. But if you take a close look at those buying forms for people, some of them appeared to be having difficulty paying their house rent. We are starting on a wrong footing, telling lies. Anybody who is serious about contesting should go and buy the form and not send people while claiming reluctance.
The shadowy group going about saying they are purchasing forms for people is a laughing situation. It’s a big lie and it should be discouraged.”
Kanyi Daily also recalls that Miyetti Allah surfaced to deny claims of buying the presidential form for Goodluck Jonathan.
