Zamfara APC Adopts Indirect Primaries



Ahead of the All Progressives Congress (APC) primaries, the Zamfara State chapter of the party has resolved to adopt indirect primaries for the conduct.
Briefing newsmen shortly after the state APC stakeholders meeting held at Government House, Gusau, the chairman, Alhaji Lawal Muhammad Liman said the adoption of indirect primaries was a collective decision of all members of the party in the state.
“The members have confidence in the leadership style from federal to state level. You can see all of them, we met and resolved that we are going to conduct indirect consensus primaries”, he said.
Liman added the adoption was not a deviation but in consonance with the party National headquarters decision.
“The position of our party NEC is that we go back to our state and decide with our executive which mode will be more befitting for us, so it is not a deviation”, he said.
Liman said any time there is general elections, there is a lot of the need for reconciliation and agreements as some may not feel happy.
“We don’t have any faction, in Zamfara we are one and this is the time all our party members should unite for the success of our party “, he said.
A party official who did not want his name in print said the stakeholders during the meeting as a matter of ensuring equity also zoned the governorship slot to the Central zone which has not ever produced governor of the state.
