An aspirant in the Kogi State governorship election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Muhammed Audu, has said that only the direct primary will save the party from the “Zamfara” fate.
“We are indifferent about the mode of primaries to elect the APC candidate; any mode that is adopted, we will win. Even though we know that for indirect primaries, Bello has populated the exco with his friends, and relatives of friends and appointees.
“We still do not have a problem with that, but for the fact that after defeating Bello at the primaries, the cases in court may jeopardize our victory. The case in court might bring about a Zamfara situation. In order to avoid a situation where we will be robbed of our victory after defeating Bello, we prefer that APC adopts direct primary election,” the gubernatorial hopeful says.
