APC Headquarters Panel Dissociates Self From Lagos Primary

A crisis is brewing in the APC with regards to the Governorship direct primaries by its Lagos chapter on Tuesday across the state.

The national working committee (NWC) panel in charge of the APC primary election in Lagos has dissociated itself from the ongoing exercise. But why?

The committee opposed the option A4 mode used in the election, expressing preference for secret ballot system.

Option A4, still known as open ballot, is a system where voters queue behind the agent or representative of their preferred candidates while secret ballot system is a process where a voter’s choice is confidential.

Babajide Sanwo-Olu, a former commissioner of the state, is leading Akinwunmi Ambode, governor of the state, by a landslide in the results of the election announced so far.

Did APC Headquarters Panel gave approval for the option adopted?
