The stolen money, according to the APC, had nothing to do with the revenues of the form sale.

Around the entry gate of the party’s National Secretariat, a member of the party from Enugu State was reportedly robbed of $50,000.
Mr. Felix Morka, the APC’s National Publicity Secretary, claimed in a statement released on Thursday, April 28, 2022, that the stolen money had nothing to do with the revenues of the sale of forms.
He emphasised that the party’s decision to move the gathering of forms to the International Conference Centre (ICC) was made to alleviate high people and vehicular traffic surrounding the Secretariat, which was clogged with throngs of hopefuls and their supporters.
Morka said: “Our attention has been drawn to reports in sections of the media regarding lost US Dollars at the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress.
“On Wednesday, April 27, 2022, a sum of $50,000 was reported lost by an individual around the entrance gate of the National Secretariat of the Party.
“To be clear, the lost money does not belong to the party. The loss is neither connected with proceeds of sale of forms nor with relocation of the venue for the collection of Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms from the secretariat grounds to the International Conference Centre (ICC), as erroneously reported by the media.”
All sales of forms are payable to specified bank accounts of the party, according to the party’s spokesman, as widely publicised and published in major news publications.
In any case, according to Morka, the charge for the abovementioned forms was determined and denoted in Naira rather than US Dollars.
As a result, the party asked its members and the wider public to dismiss any news or suggestions to the contrary, calling them false and deceptive.
