APC success in bye elections is attestation to APC victory in 2019 – party chieftain - Yobe APC adopts indirect election for party’s primaries

The All Progressives Congress in Yobe, has adopted indirect elections for the party’s primaries to select candidates for the 2019 general elections.

This development was contained in a letter made available to newsmen on Wednesday in Damaturu, signed by the party’s state chairman, Adamu Chilariye and the secretary, Abubakar Bakabe respectively.

The party said it adopted the indirect option following the party’s State Executive Committee (SEC) meeting on Tuesday, September 4 in Damaturu, which “deliberated extensively on the needs and peculiarities of the state.

“The SEC also consulted widely with critical stakeholders of the party to adopt a unified position among options provided by the constitution of our great party,” it said.

The party attributed lack of updated membership register, owing to security challenges in the state, as an impediment to the adoption of direct elections for the party’s primaries.

The party also claimed that it lacked resources and time to conduct direct elections to meet the dateline provided by the national secretariat of the party.
“Therefore, in view of the aforementioned factors, the SEC and the stakeholders have unanimously resolved to adopt the indirect election option for the primary.

“The SEC and stakeholders, therefore, resolved to forward these resolutions to the National Working Committee for approval,” the letter said.
