This was made known by Lanre Issa-Onilu, APC spokesman, in a statement on Friday.
Issa-Onilu said the decision was taken at a meeting of the party’s national working committee (NWC) which held on Friday.
“The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has approved Indirect Primaries to elect the Party’s candidate for the forthcoming Kogi Governorship election,” he said.
“The approval was given after a meeting of the NWC on Friday where a formal request from the Kogi State executive and stakeholders in preference for the Indirect Primary was considered and deliberated on.
“Recall that the APC Constitution which was reemphasized by a decision of National Executive Committee (NEC) provides for three mode of primary election to elect Party candidates – Indirect, Direct Primaries and consensus – depending on the peculiarities of the state and preferences of the stakeholders in respective elections.”
The statement said the timetable for the sales of forms and conduct of primaries would soon be announced.
