                         Kogi Governorship Election

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has adopted Indirect Primaries to elect the Party’s candidate for the 2019 Kogi Governorship election.

This was contained in a statement made available to Akelicious by the APC National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, on Friday, in Abuja.

Issa-Onilu said “the approval was given after a meeting of the NWC on Friday where a formal request from the Kogi State executive and stakeholders in preference for the Indirect Primary was considered and deliberated on.”

He said “the APC Constitution which was reemphasized by a decision of National Executive Committee (NEC) provides for three mode of primary election to elect Party candidates – Indirect, Direct Primaries and Consensus – depending on the peculiarities of the state and preferences of the stakeholders in respective elections.”

Meanwhile, the APC Spokesman told Akelicious that “the Party’s timetable for the sales of forms and conduct of primaries will be announced in due course.”

The Kogi State Governorship election has been fixed for November this year, by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC),Akelicious.

The incumbent Governor, Yahaya Bello is seeking to return on the APC platform, while Senator Dino Melaye of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is his major challenger.

Melaye has since obtained his nomination form, vowing to unseat Governor Bello at the polls.
