“Extortionist Tollgates”- Senator Shehu Sani Laments Monetization Of Politics


Senator Shehu Sani has lamented the monetization of the Nigerian political space.

The Kaduna State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)  governorship aspirant in a post on twitter described the trend as checkpoints to power.

“Pay for form, pay for submission of form, pay for screening,  pay or contribute for venue or logistics for primaries. Pay delegates. I’m not supposed to write this but I have to; Extortionist Tollgates or Checkpoints to power,” his post reads.

Nigeria’s political parties have come under intense criticisms over the high cost of contesting for political office.

Presidential aspirants in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) paid N100 million for nomination forms while aspirants in the PDP parted ways with N40 million.

For the governorship, APC aspirants paid N50 million while PDP aspirants paid N21 million.
