The All Progressives Congress (APC) is setting up electoral panels for the conduct of governorship primaries in Imo State and Zamfara State.
The national chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, stated this at his campaign office in Abuja on Friday.
Adam Oshiomhole said the new committee will have credible members who will not be compromised
“In Imo State we are setting up a committee that will be manned by men and women who cannot be compromised in the light of what happened the other day and they will conduct transparent primaries.
He said “For me and for the NWC what matters in this process is not who wins, what matters in this process is the integrity of the process. Once the integrity of the process can be guaranteed, whoever win, wins”.
The APC suspended indefinitely the Imo State primaries following the controversy that surrounded the process and the committee in charge of the election.
While in Zamfara State the party cancelled the governorship primary due to violence.
“We have reports from Zamfara State which shows that elections were botched because the process of the election was hijacked, materials were snatched and result taken to unauthorised places. And the panel which we sent headed by an associate professor, Abubakar Faki, and all the members have come to explain to us what happened. It’s unfortunate that many people chose to opt for violence, but I am happy that the panel stood their grounds and refused to compromise even in the face of intimidation and we are going to have to conduct a free, fair primaries in Zamfara.
