Oyo APC adopts indirect primaries
The Oyo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress on Saturday adopted the indirect primary ahead of 2019 general elections.
At a meeting attended by 26 governorship aspirants of the party in Ibadan and the state Governor Abiola Ajimobi, they all agreed to the choice, promising to support any of them that emerged as the party’s flag bearer.
The governor stated that all aspirants serving in his cabinet must resign immediately to show commitment to their aspiration. He said the move was to reduce the number of aspirants for an easy primary. He said that there would be no consensus candidates for all the positions and that he had no anointed candidate for the governorship position.
The communication Minister, Barr. Adebayo Shittu was absent from the meeting.
Amongst the attendees were former Governor Adebayo Alao-Akala, Engr. Olasunkanmi Tegbe, Chief Bayo Adelabu, Sola Ayandele, Barr. Niyi Akintola, Alh. Olalekan Alli, Sen. Fatahi Buhari, Sunday Dare, Alh. Azeez Adeduntan, Adesoji Eniade, Omodewu and a host of others.
