BREAKING NEWS: APC in Edo sate Adopts Indirect Primaries
The Edo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has adopted the indirect mode of primaries in the forth coming Gubernatorial election in Edo State.
Edo APC Chairman, Anselm Ojesua disclosed this on Friday at a meeting with stakeholders held in the State party secretariat in Benin City.
The State Chairman stated the Coronavirus pandemic as one of the reasons for this decision, adding that having 300,000 individuals risking their lives in this period for the sake of conducting primaries is unethical.
Ojesua also mentioned that the newly rebuilt Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium would be used as the venue to host the statutory delegates.
He also noted that the state party lacks a credible register of members, hence making the direct primaries method unworkable.
The Edo State indirect primaries will host about 3,500 delegates next month, according to the state chairman of the party.
