APC Set To Conduct Governorship Primary In Ondo, Inaugurates Committees
The All Progressives Congress, APC, has announced members of the committees that would oversee the governorship primary election in Ondo State scheduled for Saturday, September 3.
The Primaries and Appeals committees were inaugurated at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja by the National organizing secretary of the party, Osita Isunazo, on Thursday.
He charged the committees to exhibit the highest standard possible to ensure that the exercise will be free and fair.
The primaries committee has Governor Badaru Abubakar of Jigawa as Chairman, and Bruce Ugbode as secretary.
Members include Hamma Ali, M. Martin and Mohammed Lawal.
The appeals committee is chaired by Helen Bendega, Musa Umara serves as secretary, with Nikky Ejezie as member.
This seem to be in keeping with the tradition in APC that has seen all the governorship primaries of the party being chaired by a governor.
Recall that the Kogi state committee was chaired by governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State.
Bayelsa State was chaired by governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State, while Edo State was headed by governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State.
