Ahead of the primaries of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State, chairmen of the party across the 18 local government areas in the state have warned party leaders against imposition of any of the aspirants on the party.
The chairmen, who stated this during a press conference in Akure, the state capital, said any attempt to impose a candidate on the party would spell doom for it in the November 26 governorship election.
Speaking on behalf of the chairmen, the Dean of Chairmen, Mr Rasheed Badmos, stated that only free, fair and credible primaries can make the party win the November 26 poll.
Badmus said: “We know that if this information is true, it is not only worrisome, rather, it will spell electoral doom for our great party in Ondo State.”
He noted that “the people of the state are watching” and would reject imposition.
Similarly, Ondo Progressive Coalition has warned the national leader of the party not to impose any candidate.
The group gave this warning in a statement signed by its chairman, Mr Adewetan Vincent
