Ahead of December 7, 2019, local government election in Ekiti State, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has revealed that its primaries would be conducted through an indirect method.
The party said the decision was reached and ratified by its State Executive Committee meeting after extensive deliberation.
The party’s Publicity Secretary, Mr Ade Ajayi while speaking with newsmen assured that the party would give a level playing ground for all aspirants provided that membership status is certified.
The ruling party promised to conduct credible, transparent, free and fair primaries for the Councillorship and Chairmanship elections slated for September 21 and 28 respectively, noting that there would be no room for imposition against peoples’ choice.
Ajayi said, “APC is not ready to impose aspirants. But there are provisions for consensus where it is possible. And when it is not possible the aspirants will go for primary election through an indirect method.
“The party will never deprive anyone who eminently qualifies the right to participate in the primary elections.
On the alleged rigging plot raised by the opposition parties, the party described the allegation as frivolous, baseless and spurious in all its measures.
APC said Fayemi’s unparalleled achievements within one year in the saddle have endeared the party to peoples’ minds, noting that the party electoral victory is sacrosanct.
