THE All Progressives Congress – APC, National Working Committee – NWC has approved direct primaries for the Edo governorship poll.
The National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole disclosed this at a news conference in Abuja on Monday.
Oshiomhole however, noted that the APC’s National Working Committee did not discuss nor decide on the mode of primaries for the Ondo Governorship election scheduled for July 20.
“That of Ondo has not been discussed because that will come much later because Edo will come about three weeks before Ondo,” he said.
The National Chairman of the APC emphasized that governors were the party’s assets, saying ‘’once a candidate emerged, we all work and ensure that we do our best to persuade the people in the respective states to favour us with their votes.’’
“I am sure that by the special grace of God, the Ondo Governor is here, he did well and electorate are more sophisticated now, so we have no fear about that.
