Direct Or Indirect, Tinubu Will Win APC Presidential Primary – SWAGA by bolaayenimo: 10:16am On Dec 23, 2021
By Temidayo Akinsuyi

LAGOS – The South-West Agenda for Asiwaju 2023 (SWAGA’23) has said Asiwaju Bola Tinu­bu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former Lagos State gover­nor, will win the presidential primary of the ruling APC irrespective of the mode of primaries adopted by the party.

Speaking in an interview with DAILY INDEPENDENT, Honourable Bosun Oladele, SWAGA’s National Secretary, said the group during its formation has made provisions for whatever primaries the party will adopt by enlisting the support of former National Assembly members who are statutory delegates in the case of indirect primary and grassroots politicians who can effectively mobilise people in the case of direct primary.

He said “People have been talking about whether direct or indirect primary should be adopted. The idea is that every former member of the National Assembly, be it Senator or Reps are automatic statutory delegates.

“If they say it is indirect primary tomorrow, even if they have gone to another party, wherever they are, they are among the delegates that will vote by rights and by law for all the parties. For example, I am from Oyo state. Every four years, Oyo state will turn out 14 House of Reps members and statutorily, every state has three senators”.

“So, if you look at Oyo state, assuming we are able to get 14 Reps and three senators, that is 17 votes already in the delegates’ election. So, we decided to bring former members of the national assembly together, with the belief that we already have some votes in the kitty in case the indirect primary is adopted.

“With the benefit of hindsight, we also look at the possibility of direct primary where all party members will vote. So, we decided to bring in notable politicians at the grassroots level that have a bond with the people at the grassroots. These include former and serving local government chairmen, house of assembly members, councillors and other party leaders that could mobilise support for Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

“That was why we had members who were not national assembly members in the group. That was the concept of SWAGA. At the time we were forming SWAGA, we just believed that we should have a political pressure group for advocacy on behalf of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

“We started by constituting the Central Working Committee made up of two members per state. When we got to Lagos state, we had to accommodate four members because of the size of the state. Honourable Oye Ojo did a great job in terms of networking. We were all driven by the passion to see what we can do for Asiwaju given the fact that he has done so much for the South-West and the progressive family.”

Why will Nigeria be fostered with another bed ridden President who will be too fragile to carry the burden of the nation. SWAGA should find someone else. APC will even loose, except through massive rigging, which may snowball to another massive protest!

Tinubu a very WICKED & SELFISH man.
He knew Buhari was a canca-worm & a religious bigot but he encouraged the entire Yoruba people to vote Buhari into power so that he can be president in 2023.
Now look at our once beloved country It's in a total mess & Tinubu has never condemned Buhari even when Fulani herdsmen are killing his own people.
TINUBU CAN NEVER BE PRESIDENT.

It’s extremely silly and petty to even reduce the entire Direct primary debate to Tinubu’s presidential ambition. We’ve all seen the problem with the indirect method that most parties have adopted since 1999. So, why are we reducing the effort to make party primary process more democratic and all embracing about one man?

In America, all party members are allowed to attend party caucus to select the candidates of the party. What’s wrong in doing exactly the same in Nigeria since we copied our presidential system from them? How do we solve the problem of money bags and godfathers hijacking the party for unpopular candidates if not through allowing all members to decide?

It should be optional. The masses are at liberty to vote who emerged from direct primaries. Direct primaries is an attempt to use the constitution to recruit more members for political parties. The most important element of the electoral law is electronic transfer of results
