"I felt heavily sorry for myself", Buhari says after picking N27m APC presidential form

During a Speech at the National Secretariat of the APC yesterday October 16th, General Muhammadu Buhari who is running for president for the fourth time, said he felt sorry for himself after buying the APC nomination form for N27.5million
"It’s a pity I couldn’t influence this amount to be put down ‎as in the case of ladies and the disable that intend to participate. I always look left and right in our meetings but I could not read sympathy, so I kept my trap. But I felt heavily sorry for myself because I don’t want to go and ask somebody to pay for my nomination forms, because I always try to pay myself, at least for the nomination. N27 million is a big sum, thankfully I have personal relationship with the manager of my bank in Kaduna and I told him that very soon the forms are coming, so, whether I am on red, or green or even black please honour it otherwise I may lose the nomination."
"I was about to go to Kaduna this morning and I told the Chairman but he said in that case, you better pick your form and keep a straight face that means there is no excuse,” Mr. Buhari said.
Responding to Buhari, the APC National Chairman, John Oyegun said the high price attached to the nomination form was “in order to separate the men from the boys”.
