Thief Cart Away With $75,000 At APC Office

On Wednesday, there was some uncertainty at the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress after at least N43,000,000 went missing.

The canopy beneath which the sale of forms was taking place was suddenly demolished without explanation, according to the report.

Due to current renovation/refurbishment work in the Secretariat main building, the party resorted to canopies, according to the PUNCH.

The amount of $75,000 was said to have gone missing during the packed tussle at the party’s main entrance.

Party sources, however, disclosed that the missing money was in no way connected to the monies from sale of nomination and expression of interest forms as aspirants are expected to make deposits in the designated account numbers before picking up their forms at Buhari House.

“It’s actually $75,000. You know there was a struggle at the gate when aspirants and supporters were trying to get in.

“When the parcel of money dropped, it went missing in a flash. By the time security operatives were alerted the thief had vanished with the envelope,” the party source said.

Earlier, the Secretariat had been a beehive of activities as aspirants trooped in to obtain forms for various electoral offices.

On the outside of Buhari House were hundreds of supporters lined up to cheer their respective aspirants as they made their way into the premises.

Wednesday’s sale of forms had made it clear that the party premises may not accommodate the nearly two-week exercise.

Therefore, talks are underway to relocate to a different venue altogether.

At the time of filing this report, officials of the party officials were heard deliberating to move the exercise to International Conference Centre, Abuja.
