The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) condemns what it calls the unauthorized primaries held in Edo State into the Senate, House of Representatives and House of Assembly.
In a statement, the Ag. National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Yekini Nabena, said the exercise conducted by unauthorized persons in collaboration with the Party’s Edo State Working Committee was null and void.
“A primary election committee under the chairmanship of Hajia Farida Odangi Suleiman will be in Edo state later today (Thursday) to conduct the primaries into the Senate, House of Representatives and House of Assembly,” the statement noted.
It added, “The Committee will make available the list of aspirants screened for the exercise and will conduct a transparent primary election in accordance with the guidelines and constitution of the APC.
“We admonish all Party members in Edo state to cooperate with the Committee to ensure an orderly, peaceful, transparent and credible exercise.”
