Edo Polls: Oshiomhole Insists On Direct Primaries, Writes INEC by Crownbefitsme(f): 6:20am On Jun 04, 2020


The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, has written to the Independent National Electoral Commission insisting that the party has chosen the direct primary mode for the selection of its candidate for the Edo State governorship poll.

In a letter dated May 19, 2020, addressed to INEC Chairman, Oshiomhole said the party had put in place measures to ensure strict compliance with the COVID-19 prevention guidelines.

An acknowledged copy of the letter sighted by our correspondent in Abuja, on Wednesday, said the party’s decision was in full compliance with the APC constitution and the Electoral Act.

The letter captioned “Notice of intention to conduct direct primary for the Edo State Governorship Election,” read in part, “I convey to you my compliments and wish to respectfully inform you that the All Progressives Congress has decided to conduct direct primary for the Edo State Governorship Election on Monday, 22nd of June, 2020.

“To this end, we have put in place modalities to ensure strict compliance with the COVID-19 prevention guidelines as announced by the COVID-19 Presidential Task Force and the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.

“Therefore, direct primaries will be conducted in one hundred and ninety-two (192) wards.”

“We, accordingly, invite you as observers of the primaries with full compliance with All Progressives Congress Constitution and the Electoral Act.”

Wait ooo, the people that will vote if it is direct primaries, are they not the same Edo people that Obaseki prides himself to have served well?

Why him dey fear naa?
And I don't support Godfatherism.
Obaseki should have read the art of war or rely on our Enugu past Governors, either Sullivan or chimarouke' tactics.

It's not done over night. And It's too late for Him, unless APC chieftains backs him up.

Even Nwodo tried it in Enugu when he wanted to make Ideke( Okey Ezea) PDP flag bearer

Nice one...

if you want to save Obaseki, head to Edo State and go get registered at an APC ward party sectariat and vote him at the primaries, dont come online and be disturbing us

Obaseki's ugly face is never in the news to commission any meaningful project, every news involving him is about draging power with the state assembly, draging power with APC NWC and party Chairman, demolition of peoples homes and hotels (James Ibori's house, Kabaka's hotel) or getting arrested in paris by interpol for trying to smuggle $2million USD through his commisioner

Just look at Wike, Emmanuel Udom, Ganduje, and Akeredolu.. you mostly see them in the news getting things done, commisioning new projects or something positive

Oshiomole is like most Nigerian celebs, when them dey street them go dey Shout God name up and down, when Baba God come finally pick their call madness go start. Irritating right?
AMBODE DID WELL FOR LAGOS STATE BUT HE IS NOT A PARTY MAN - TINUBU.

APC will loose more states just like Obaseki mentioned, with the way their godfatherism is going. If Obaseki does not get this ticket, Edo is going to PDP,cos Edo is PDP. Last election should tell them that. APC better use their head and leave party politics, Obaseki was elected governor of the people not governor of APC.




God bless Nigeria.

Direct Primary is very democratic, yet it is mostly feared by those forming advocate for democracy.

Let the best man win.

I fear another Zamfara and Rivers brouhaha loading. They had better settle this Primary election well, else they'll lose the state because of an illegal primary election.
