2019: FCT To Adopt Indirect Primaries For APC Candidates

Published

on

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has opted for indirect primaries in the election of candidates for the forthcoming general elections in 2019.
A member of the FCT-APC board of trustees, Senator Sidi Ali, who announced the decision at the end of the party’s stakeholders meeting, in Abuja yesterday, explained that the option was chosen by members through yes vote. Ali added that the position of the stakeholders was in line with that of the state executive committee, which had earlier opted for indirect primaries for APC candidates.

According to him, “The FCT stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) meet today, in Abuja on the position of the party in the FCT as directed by the national working committee, concerning the mode of primaries that would produce APC candidates for the 2019 general elections.
After due briefing, stakeholders approved the position of the state executive committee, which opted for the indirect primaries. This was done by yes vote.”
Also speaking, chairman of Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC), Hon Abdullahi Adamu Candido, noted that the indirect primaries option for APC candidates in the FCT would curb hooliganism and rancour on the day of election.

Candido disclosed that stakeholders have advised the executive members of the party to approach the election without thinking of any monetary inducements, adding that inducement could make the party pick the wrong candidates in the election.
In his contributions, chairman of APC in the FCT, Alhaji Abdulmalik Usman, maintained that the indirect primaries model would be rancour-free, compared to the direct primaries model that attracts everyone to vote.
Also, the coordinator of Satellite Towns Development Department (STDD), Hon Tanko Ishyaku Yamawo stated that the decision of the party shows that APC in FCT is operating as one family, adding that the party in the FCT has never witnessed any crisis in the past.
