The Peoples Redemption Party, PRP, says the cost of the nomination forms are: House of Assembly-N100, 000; House of Representatives- N250,000; Senate– N1,500,000; Governor-N2,500,000 and President-N10,000,000.

The PRP National Chairman, Falalu Bello, disclosed this in a statement in Abuja on Monday, saying that the purported fees of N500,000 and N200,000 for presidential and governorship positions were fraudulent.

He said: “The attention of the PRP has been drawn to a fraudulent circular designed and circulated by some duplicitous elements that intend to scam unsuspecting members of the public.

“For the records, this crooked circular did not emanate from the PRP. It is a handiwork of mischief makers who are bent on creating confusion so as to defraud unsuspecting members of the public.

“The party, therefore, cautions the public on the said publication.”

Mr Bello explained that in compliance with the notice of the 2023 general elections released by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, the PRP on April 16, published guidelines for the sale and cost of its forms.

“It was further clarified in the guidelines as released by the party that in addition to the cost of nomination forms, each aspirant will be required to pay five per cent of the nomination form fee, for expression of interest form.

“All aspirants living with disabilities shall be offered nomination and expression of interest forms of the party free of charge.
