APC Governorship Primaries In 27 States (Live Updates) by midolian(m): 12:17pm On Sep 30, 2018
The All Progressives Congress (APC) is conducting statewide primaries to choose its governorship candidates in 27 states this Sunday. Today will bring a verdict for hundreds of political gladiators who have been lobbying to get the party’s priced ticket to be candidates in the 2019 governorship election, which is part of the general election scheduled for February.
Due to widespread division amongst aspirants in several states over issues ranging from to zoning to potential imposition of candidates by some so-called godfathers, the party at the national level decided to adopt a flexible mode in conducting its primaries this year.

The adoption of direct and indirect primaries was the immediate solution the party could come up with. Although the party acknowledges its approach may not be perfect, the two options would go a long way in mitigating post-primaries crises that often characterise Nigerian elections.

The APC looked into existing disagreements at each of the 37 state chapters (including Abuja) and recommended either direct or indirect method, depending on which has a better likelihood of keeping members united after primaries.

The direct mode means individuals who have APC membership card would go to the primaries ground and elect who they want to be the party’s candidate. This exercise is seen as more transparent and inclusive because it gives members a say on who should be their party’s choice.

In indirect exercise, some individuals who have attained the position of delegates in party structure would choose the candidate. This method has been widely criticised for being too monetised over the years.

Delegates are known to collect huge amount of cash from aspirants, sometimes at convention grounds, to elect a candidate, with the most lavish often emerging victorious.

While direct primaries could be considered cumbersome and time-consuming, the method is less prone to manipulation than indirect primaries, and all members share responsibility in the quality of leadership of whomever gets the party’s ticket.

Twenty-seven states will hold governorship primaries today. The remaining nine states include Bayelsa, Edo, Kogi, Osun, Anambra, Ekiti and Ondo, whose governorship seats are not up for contest in the upcoming general elections, and Lagos and Imo, whose primaries were postponed at the eleventh-hour last night.

Eighteen states are conducting indirect primaries today, while the remaining nine opted for the direct method.
Below is a catalogue of all states where primaries hold today. PREMIUM TIMES will bring you live updates of activities at the venues from across the country.

LIVE UPDATES

In Kano, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje is the sole governorship aspirant of APC. The party has adopted direct primaries.

At 11:28am, in Yalwa Primary School, the venue of Yalwa ward congress in Dala local government, less than 20 members of APC had arrived.
No election officials arrived yet.

A member of APC in the area, AbdurRahman Ibrahim, told PREMIUM TIMES that the reason for the low turn out of the people may not be unconnected with presidential primaries experience where people spent hours waiting for party officials who were responsible for conducting the primaries

APC has began a process that will restore power to the people, this is why compared to PDP it is a far more preferable to choice.

Watch and learn, they can, but no one needs their utterly ridiculous and useless "analysis" and "advice" on what's "best" for APC.

Buhari's agent in their party, Nyiesom Wike, is busy wrecking havoc on they killer party cum establishment, yet their greatest problem seems to be how APC handles her own issues.

PDP is the most useless and dangerous weapon of mass destruction created by man after nuclear weapons.

There is something l observed about direct primaries election with APC.It's cheaper,it brings the candidate close to his wards and where it belong.Money inducement will be reduced drastically and if it involve it would reach every eligible member card carrier voters,wards chairman,LG and stalwarts..APC is bring democrazy to every door steps and homes.it might not be easy for them but l can see green bright light ahead.
