Buhari had last year October, claimed that he bought the APC nomination form by taking a bank loan.
“You could recall in the entire contest, I have always tried to personally pay for the nomination form at least. But N27.5m is not small.
“Thank God, I have a personal relationship with the chairman of my bank. I called him and told him that the forms are coming and so, whether my accounts are in red or green or black, you must honour this, otherwise, I will lose the nomination.
“I was about to go to Kaduna today and told the chairman and he said, ‘you better pick the form’ and he kept a straight face. That means that there is no excuse.
“I thank God that we have gotten to this stage and all speculations will now cease and now, in the best tradition of democracy, people can now follow their choice candidate into the arena,” Buhari said.Mrs. Aisha Muhammadu Buhari
