In Nigeria’s upcoming general election, APC Adamu Garba has ended his presidential bid.

The list of presidential contenders for the All Progress Congress (APC) began with a record number of the wealthy and the rich middle class.

However, the fight will now primarily be waged among the party’s wealthiest men.

The News: Despite receiving N83 million in donations from Nigerians, Adamu Garba has pulled out of the APC presidential primary.

Why it happened: Mr. Garba says that the ruling APC’s N100 million for nomination forms is unfair and may hinder effective governance.

The news follows after the Crowe app owner received almost N83 million in donations from Nigerians in support of his ambition. 

What he’s saying:

  • “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.”

What he is saying about the form:

  • “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”
