Election Mode: Borno APC Group Insist On Direct Primaries



A group of All Progressive Congress (APC) faithful in Borno with the name ” APC Take Back Control Movement” has insisted that it will abide by the resolution of the APC national executive committee as well as national working committee on the conduct of party primaries which is direct primaries against indirect.

The group said it frowns at the activities of some prominent members of the party who were beneficiaries of the past undemocratic process of achieving their desire through indirect method of imposition of candidates against the will of the majority.

The group’s position was contained in a statement signed and issued to newsmen on Monday by the convener ,APC Take Back Control , and Secretary, Buhari support Organization in Borno, Mohammed Shettima Kuburi, in Maiduguri.

Kuburi said: “Being Party of change, our party resolved to allow its members to have a say in the process of electing our candidates into elective offices through direct primaries which meant that all card carrying members would be eligible to participate in deciding who would carry the party’s flag into all elective offices.

” This , we believe is a very welcome development that will give us more advantage against other rival parties since we allow all our members to have a say in our affairs especially as regards conducting party primaries.

“But to our dismay, we came to realise that some prominent members of our party who are beneficiaries of the past undemocratic process want to still continue having their way again since they have benefited from the indirect method of imposition of candidates against the will of the majority.

“We in Borno APC , especially the ordinary card carrying members are resolutely Committed to the direct primaries ,and give our total support to our president, Muhammadu Buhari, National Chairman, Comrade Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole, and the national working committee as well as the national executive committee of our great party,” he added.

He commended the national Leadership of the party for salvaging members and setting them free from the political emasculation and control by few elements who hijacked the party machinery for their selfish personal aggrandizement.

“All APC supporters are therefore being called upon not to succumb to the antics of those attempting to disenfranchise them through endorsement or buying their support “Kuburi further said.
