APC: Delegate who cannot write will be allowed to ask for assistance – Bagudu

THE Chairman of the Election Committee of the Convention and the Chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum (PGF), Atiku Bagudu has said that delegates who cannot write will be allowed to call for assistance.

Bagudu, who stated this Tuesday, at the ongoing national convention of the party, also said the presidential aspirant with the highest number of votes would be declared the winner.

    He said fewer delegates at Eagle Square tonight would make the electoral process more manageable, unlike when the party had about 8,000 delegates at the convention in March.

    Bagudu said: “Three delegates per local government will be allowed to vote after accreditation. There will be two voting points. Two states will be called simultaneously

    “Delegates should write the name of their presidential choice clearly, while those that cannot write would be permitted to call a delegate of their choice to help them out.

    “Aspirant with the highest number of votes will be declared the winner. Any aspirant that wishes to withdraw must do so publicly and also sign the withdrawal form.”
