Speaking at a press conference to herald the collapse of his Coalition for Nigeria Movement, CNM into the African Democratic Congress, ADC, the former president in giving his prescription to stop corruption in the country, said: “To curb corruption, primary elections should cease to be by delegates but by all card-carrying and financial members of the party within their constituencies. “This will save lives as many people have died by being shepherded to a central location as delegates to vote at primaries.   It also introduced corruption into the system.   At one of the PDP primaries within the last eight years, one candidate distributed $10,000 per delegate, the one who distributed $15,000 per delegate won the primary.   It was not necessarily on merit, but certainly, dollar talked.” President Obasanjo’s quarrel was that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC which he and several other Nigerians heralded as a platform to change Nigeria has remarkably failed in changing that narrative. “Worse still is what PDP has now accepted as part of its failure and disappointment of the nation which is looting government treasury to finance individual and party elections.   Unfortunately, APC has followed suit,” the former president said.
