The National Working Committee (NWC) of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has said it might consider petitions from some stakeholders in Kogi State opposing indirect primaries adopted for the election of the party’s candidate for the governorship poll.
Concise News reports that a chieftain of APC Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and the party’s Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu made this known in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja.
The statement added that the NWC will look at the merit of the petitions in line with the party’s constitution and come out with a position in due course.
The NWC appreciated the aggrieved APC stakeholders in the State for the peaceful manner in which they have administered themselves so far and for trusting the NWC to do the right thing.
“It needs restating that the APC Constitution which was reemphasized by a decision of National Executive Committee NEC provides for three modes of primaries to elect Party candidates – Indirect, Direct Primaries and Consensus – depending on the peculiarities of the state and preferences of the stakeholders in respective elections.
“We assure all concerned parties that the NWC would be guided only by our rules,” the party stated.
