“Governor Yahaya Bello is a competitor and our party is a highly democratic space,” Leadership Newspaper quotes him as saying.

“We do not grant automatic ticket or give room for people to run away with materials meant for the primary election.

“We allow for competition under a democratic atmosphere. The Governor won the ticket a long time ago because he stood by the party, bridged the differences and carry the party on his strong shoulders for three and a half years.

“He is only competing against himself.

“Party delegates will choose him because he nurtured the party and led the party into a series of victories.
“November 16 will be another victory for the party and the Governor. Those protesting against indirect primary are indicting themselves.
“They are only telling the people that they abandoned the party. We used the model for nominating our candidates for the February and March election.
“And now the State Executive Committee and the NWC have made pronouncements.
“Anyone who claims to be real APC should not be afraid of executives piloting the affairs of his party. Governor Yahaya Bello will win the Primary massively.”
