Oshiomhole Settles With Governors; States Can Decide Mode Of Primaries

The leadership of the APC has acceded to the insistence of state chapters of the party to decide the mode of primary for the selection of candidates for the 2019 elections.

The decision was reached after an over three hours meeting between the APC National Chairman and the party’s 22 governors at the Imo State Governor’s Lodge, Asokoro, Abuja, on Wednesday night.

Oshiomhole told journalists, “First to reflect the diversity of our great country and also to try to give expression to the entire essence of federalism which allows different states to look at their own situation and advice the NWC as to what works better for them provided that in all cases the process is democratic, the rules are fair, the officiating officials are impartial.”
