Over 1.5 million card-carrying members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) are to participate in the upcoming presidential primary election of the party in Zamfara.
The Secretary of the State Committee on Presidential primary election in the state, Prof. Abdullahi Shinkafi, disclosed this to newsmen in Gusau on Sunday.
Shinkafi, who is also the Secretary to the State Government, said all card-carrying members of the party in the state would partake in the primaries.
He said the direct primaries would hold in all the 147 wards across the 14 local government areas of the state.
The secretary of state committee further stated that monitoring committees were set up right from the ward, local government, senatorial zones as well as state level to ensure a smooth running of the process.
Shinkafi, therefore, urged security agencies to provide adequate security to ensure peace throughout the exercise.
He also called on members of the party to turn out in an orderly manner and cast their vote.
