The Ag. National Chairman Allied Peoples’ Movement (APM) Mrs. Rose D. S. Gyar has made known the expression of Interest and Nomination Fee for interested candidates who want to fly party’s flag for the forth coming 2023 general elections.
She said the fees passed through due process of the party. A committee was set up by the National Working Committee during the leadership of the suspended National Chairman and a report of the committee was presented and endorsed by the appropriate organ as a working document of the party. This was the same template used in the Anambra State governorship election. It is also the same that is to be used for the 2023 general elections and the other staggered elections in 2022.
When asked why the use of an approved document by the suspended National Chairman, Yusuf Dantalle instead of coming up with a new template to exercise her authority. She simply laughed and said, an organization is always ahead and above individual operators in the organization. Management in every established and structured organization is a continuum. For any organization to be institutionalized, good governance and corporate governance practices must be adhered to. It is important that institutions including political parties realise that the sustainable growth of any organization is dependent on continuity of policies, programmes and projects even when and where there is a change in leadership. Only implementation strategy could differ depending on perception, understanding, skill, knowledge and capacity. This provides for a flash back to appraise performance and make amends where necessary.
In repositioning APM therefore, we are poised to continuing with the programmes and projects my predecessor started if any, as well as ensuring that positive and progressive relationships built over the years with stakeholders like INEC, IPAC and other political parties, etc are sustained. Those that are also perceived to be negative would be amended in order to ensure that APM becomes the political party platform Nigerians have been yearning for.
She enjoined all interested aspirants hoping to become candidates to fly the party’s flag to adhere to the fee payment template below and note the bank account into which all fees are to be paid into. She admonished all that her regime is cashless and digital inclined.
The Ag. National Chairman also used the opportunity to dispel the rumour that APM is fictionalized. She informed the general public that APM is only repositioning to take over power in 2023. Therefore it is only craving to do the right thing particularly adhering to the provisions of the Electoral Act 2022 as amended and the INEC guidelines as made public for congresses, conventions and primaries for all political parties. Genuine party members should therefore not be deceived by the stories in the public space about self arrogated powers of INEC by the NEC of any political party whatsoever to disregard the law of the land or directives of INEC.
She reiterated that the present leadership of APM would always engage responsibly with stakeholders to ensure the dispensation of justice, equity and fairness and therefore called on all members of the party to exercise restraints even in the face of provocation to cause a reaction that could degenerate into chaos.
According to the statement signed by the Ag. National Chairman, Mrs. Rose D. S. Gyar, “President. 3m + 15m. = 18m
Governor. 1m +10m = 11m
Senate. 500,000 + 2m. = 2.5m
Reps. 300,000 +. 1.2m. = 1.5m
SHA. 100,000 + 400,000= 500,000
Female candidates will pay only expression of interest
