Why EFCC must investigate all public officers that procured APC presidential form with 100M

It is on this note that I call on the EFCC and all other concerned government agencies in Nigeria to do the needful and investigate the Ministers and others who subsequently purchase the APC Presidential nomination and interest form for ₦100 million because it raises a clear suspicion as to the sources of their wealth especially considering the office being aspired to pays less salary cumulatively in a single tenure than the actual cost of declaration. Failure of the EFCC to investigate the source of their respective N100M will set a dangerous precedent and only send a message to the world that the agency’s is weak and has compromised on its primary mandate. The agency must fine-comb through the candidacy and campaign of all of the presidential aspirants notably those in the APC who have not batted an eyelid in paying the ransom called the nomination fee of their party.
