Stakeholders Demand Direct Primary To Select Candidate

Stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) in Kogi state, have once again called on the national secretariat of the party to adopt the direct mode of primary to select the governorship candidate of the party.

The Stakeholderslder said direct primary is the only means that can guarantee transparency, fairness and all inclusiveness for the party.

The stakeholderslders led by former Commissioner for Information, Dr. Tom Ohikere made this known in an open letter addressed to the national chairman of the party, Sen. Abdullahi Adamu.
The open letter partly reads, “Don’t listen to those loyal to the system in the state who may hijack the process citing their usual old trick of insecurity and lack of comprehensive membership register – because this is no longer tenable.

“Mr. Chairman sir, we have been following your political trajectories over the years, and we know that you became the chairman of the party in order to change the narratives at all levels.

“We are also conscious of the fact that the oppositions in Kogi state particularly, the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) and the new entrant, Africa Democratic Congress, (ADC), are regrouping and becoming stronger, they are just waiting for the APC to make a mistake so that they can take political advantage of the already dicey situation.

“We are aware that the strategy for the primary election to select a candidate for the 2023 general election has become the major issue currently agitating the minds of the stakeholders and threatening the internal peace and cohesion of the party in the state.

“Sequel to this, we are therefore convinced that it is time for the national leadership of the party to intervene and announce the appropriate mode of choosing the party’s gubernatorial candidate.
