The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is smiling to the bank with a whooping sum of N3bn it raked in from the sales of its nomination and expression of interest forms to interested political office seekers in the 2015 general elections.

It was observed that the sale of the forms was originally slated to end last Friday, but the party extended it by one week with the hope that many of its members would still purchase forms.

With this, the curtain for the sales of form would fall tomorrow, Thursday, Punch reports.

The party collected N22m from its Presidential aspirants, while its governorship aspirants paid N11m each for the forms.

Also, each senatorial aspirant in the party paid N4.5m and those vying for the House of Representatives were asked to pay N2.5m.

Form for those aspiring to go to state Houses of Assembly, were tagged at N1.2m each.

Before now, the party charged female aspirants for the expression of interest forms but this year, the reverse was the case as they were exempted from paying for nomination forms.

It was gathered that the amounts realised from the sales of forms are to be shared among the three arms of the party.

They are national secretariat (80 per cent), state chapters (15 per cent) while the zonal offices are to receive five per cent.

The bulk of the money made is, however, from the over 234 governorship aspirants across the country.


The party was said to have made N2.684bn from them.
