2019: Aspirants promise to abide by party directives

Published by The Nation on Thu, 23 Aug 2018

Some aspirants seeking the ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to contest next years general elections in Edo State have promised to abide by the directives of the party leadership on the conduct of primaries.The assurance is coming against the background of the division in the APC over the options to adopt for the conduct of the primaries.While some party members are seeking for consensus arrangement, others are insisting on direct primary that was used recently in Osun State.The APC National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, and Governor Godwin Obaseki are said to have divergent views on the option to adopt.Party sources said Obaseki is lobbying party leaders to accept the use of consensus arrangement against the use of direct primary being championed by Oshiomhole.The aspirants who spoke to our reporter said they were loyal party members and that they would abide by whatever options the party decides to use.They said the crucial thing is to produce candidates that are capable of winning during the general elections.The lawmaker representing Estako Central Federal Constituency, Hon. Johnson Oghuma, said he would support any option approved by Oshiomhole, because he is a loyal party man.Hon. Peter Akpatason who represents Akoko-Edo said the ability of candidates to win elections is beyond party primaries.Akpatason noted that the important thing for the party is to get credible candidates with good pedigree and have the ability to win elections.The post 2019: Aspirants promise to abide by party directives appeared first on The Nation Nigeria.
