According to him, the Ministers of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, Godwin Emefiele, Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, and Timipreye Sylva, Minister of Petroleum for State, did not submit their forms.

“For some of them, it’s a bit iffy. What I have this time, we’ve 28 who purchased form and at the last count, we have 25 who made submission.

“But three of them did not. They’re Senator Chris Ngige, Godwin Emefiele and then we have Timipre Sylva,” he said.

This might imply that presidential forms purchased for former President Goodluck Jonathan and African Development Bank CEO Akinwumi Adesina were really filed.

Adesina, the president of the African Development Bank, has denied running for president.

This came after a consortium of 28 organizations purchased and filed the APC’s nomination and expression of interest forms on behalf of Adesina.

Though Adesina stated in a statement on Tuesday that he is not running for president, it is unclear if people who purchased the forms are able to fill them out and submit them on their own.

There are speculations that the APC postponed the screening of its presidential aspirants to May 23 to allow Jonathan and others to submit their nomination forms, but the party’s mouthpiece could confirm that all forms, including that of Jonathan, have been submitted except three.

Former President of Nigeria, Jonathan had said he didn’t authorize the APC presidential nomination form purchased for him by the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders’ Association.

The former President, through a statement issued in Abuja by his spokesman, Ikechukwu Eze, said he had no link to the northern coalition that purchased the form.

He admonished those behind the charade to desist from further defacing his name and urged Nigerians to disregard it.

But barely 48 hours after dissociating himself from moves by some groups to draft him into the 2023 presidential race, Jonathan reportedly joined the APC in Bayelsa and finally made up his mind to vie for the top post.
