The Edo State chapter of the Labour Party, LP, said on Wednesday that its expression of interest and nomination forms, which cost N30 million, is the lowest-priced among the three major political parties and therefore should be affordable for any serious aspirant wishing to contest the governorship election on its platform, as per DAILYPOST.JAMB Portal

The aspirants appealed to the national leadership of the party to reduce the fees to between N1 million and N5 million, noting that the N5 million for expression of interest and N25 million for the nomination forms do not align with the principles and public perception of the party.

Ogbaloi, however, explained that the cost of elections into political offices in Nigeria is quite expensive, as witnessed in the recent general elections.NYSC Portal

“Political party funding is a challenge. The sale of forms is a major source through which political parties are funded.

“Aside from being qualified to contest an election, aspirants must also be ready to show capability and capacity to fund campaigns and other election requirements.JAMB PORTAL

“A lot of issues that may arise as a result of primaries and the election itself, which has to do with litigation arising from such activities as well as other logistics issues, make it imperative for the parties to charge a reasonable fee like ours. So that it can adequately discharge its responsibilities during and after the elections.informationguidenigeria

“Therefore, any aspirant who cannot afford the fee lacks the capacity to run for the governorship election,” he said.
