Several hours after some state chapters commenced their governorship primaries, there are no signs that the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Adamawa State held its primaries yesterday.
This is not unconnected to disagreements between Governor Mohammed Jibrilla Bindow and President Muhammadu Buhari’s supporters over the venue for the exercise as at the time of filing this report.
The President’s supporters are fronting for Mahmoud Halilu Ahmed, who is a younger brother to Buhari’s wife, while the governor’s supporters are said to be adamant in the choice of their preferred venue.
In a related development, the Kwara State Chairman of APC, Bashir Bolarinwa, has described a document in circulation, particularly on social media purportedly disqualifying some governorship aspirants on the party’s platform as fake.
Meanwhile, APC’ National Working Committee (NWC) has expelled the Ishola Balogun-Fulani led Kwara State executive from the Party.
The party in a statement issued by its Acting National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, however, declined to comment on the reason for the drastic action.
