Kana lamented that although no formal announcement has been made regarding the purported primary election, the state chapter of the party did not take any proactive step towards addressing the anomaly forcing him to seek the intervention of the national leadership of the APC.

He therefore called for an Immediate cancellation of the results Kana also enjoined the national secretariat to invite all the Kokona West delegates and ascertain their respective votes for each of the aspirants, more particularly whether the election actually took place and the figure allocated are true reflection of the delegates’ minds.
