Addressing party faithful in Umuomainta Mbawsi in Isiala Ngwa North council, State chairman of the party, Hon. Donatus Nwankpa who described the fees as outrageous, explained that the APC frowns at the N500,000.00 for LGA  polls and would go to  every length to challenge it.

Nwankpa warned that ABSIEC is not a revenue yielding agency but a service delivery one which is provided for in the state budget.

He urged President Muhammadu Buhari to “look towards the party in Abia as lots of APC members that produced the President have become disillusioned and angry.
