The coalition of interest groups has obtained the All Progressives Congress (APC) 2023 presidential form for the African Development Bank (AfDB) president, Akinwumi Adesina.
Led by One Nigeria Group, a coalition of 28 groups including the Youth Arise Movement, Nigerians in the Diaspora, the Prudent Youth Association of Nigeria, women’s groups, farmers, people with disabilities and other civil society organizations, collectively raised N100 million for the form.
The payment slip and One Nigeria Group Head, Mohammed Saleh, who led others to receive the form, allegedly had Mr Adesina’s name as the recipient of the forms.
Although Adesina has not yet officially declared interest in the presidential race, some groups moved for the support.
There are indications that Mr Adesina, who met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa in Abuja last week, may contest for presidency.
