However, at the Thursday meeting of the party in Abeokuta with party’s stakeholders from all the wards, the State Chairman, Derin Adebiyi succumbed to the directive of direct primaries and urged all the party faithful to comply.
Penpushing further reports that, Adebiyi said the party has received the registers from the party’s headquarters but still awaiting the membership cards, saying the national leadership has promised to provide it, explaining that the earlier agreement to go for indirect primaries was based on non availability of the registers and membership cards.
His words: “We have the registers now but still waiting for the membership cards. The registers have the picture and name of all the members at different wards so you should go to your wards and vote
“We know ourselves at every ward and polling unit. I am sure nobody who is not APC member will come out to participate in the primaries. And in case you caught any impositor, please don’t beat anybody, just hand him or her to the security agents,” Adebiyi said.
The party boss assured the party faithful that all logistics would be provided for the smooth conduct of the primaries.
In the same vein, Alhaji Tajudeen Bello, a member of the National Working Committee, NWC, agreed with the State Chairman, boasting that the state would continue to lead by example. He urged members to conduct themselves peacefully in the primaries.
