After losing the fight over mode of primary, some aspirants in today’s governorship election primary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), have raised the alarm over their alleged non hiding of list of delegates by the party leadership and the Governor Yaya Bello election committee
One of the aspirants, Ife Oyedele, has cried out that less than 24 hours to the election, his camp was yet to be provided with the delegate list o enablke him take his campaign to them
Oyedele, who described the development as worrisome, appealed to the leadership of the party to correct the lapses to avoid crisis within the party.
The aspirant, who expressed concern that the 11 of the aspirants were yet to have access to the delegate’s list meant for the exercise, pointed out that the decision by the leadership of the party to adopt indirect mode of primaries as against the clamour for direct by 11 of the 12 aspirants was an indication for post primaries crisis, adding that he aspirant will not boycott the primaries despite the irregularities.
“It is obvious that the delegates’ list must have been altered to favour the incumbent governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu. The party is not preparing for the success of the primaries.
“As at the moment, we have not heard any information on how the exercise will go. The venue has not been agreed upon. The list of delegates that will participate in the primaries has not been made available to the aspirants.
“The question is, which list of delegates will they use for the primaries and who generated the list. We have our own list across the state as well as the list of executives that emanated from congress. The situation we are in is a dangerous one.”
