Kogi guber: APC to review petitions against indirect primaries



The All Progressives Congress (APC) said it would review the requests of some stakeholders in Kogi in response to the Indirect Primaries adopted for the election of the Party’s candidate for November 16, the Governor of Kogi.

The ruling party said this in a statement signed by its national advertising secretary, Malam Lanre Issa-Onilu in Abuja on Wednesday, reports NAN.

“The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All All Progressives Congress (APC) has received requests from some stakeholders in the state of Kogi in response to the indirect primaries adopted for the election of the Party candidate for the next election of Governor in the country.

“The NWC will analyze the merit of the petitions in line with the constitution of the Party and will come out with a position in due time.

“The NWC, therefore, thanks to the APC stakeholders in Kogi State for the peaceful manner in which they have conducted so far and their confidence in the NWC to do the right thing,” said Issa-Onilu.

According to him, it was necessary to reaffirm that the constitution of APC, which was emphasized in a decision of the National Executive Committee (NEC, for its acronym in English), provides three primary ways to elect party candidates: indirect, primary and direct consensus.

“This depends on the peculiarities of the state and the preferences of those interested in the respective elections. “We assure all interested parties that our rules will only guide the NWC,” said the APC spokesman.
