Former Senator from Adamawa State and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) ,Abubakar Girei said that contrary to the position of the national chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole who claimed that 90 per cent of its members are happy with him, the reverse is the case. Senator Girei responding to Oshiomhole’s position said, “I am shocked to hear our dear National Chairman H. E. Adams Oshiomhole say that 90 per cent of APC members are happy and in support of him on the just concluded primary elections that took place nationwide. “Because of the urgent need to correct the erroneous impression created by the national chairman, I am constrained to say that the reverse is the case. That is 90 per cent of APC members nationwide are very angry and totally opposed to the poor way and manner the primaries were conducted resulting into the selection and imposition of candidates.
“Adamawa State in particular, there was not even a semblance of primary election for the governorship in 95 per cent of the wards. Primaries for the legislative seats were similarly poorly handled and discredited.
“Unless the national chairman understand and accept this for a fact and put in place a strategic plan to remedy the situation our party and candidates will pay dearly for it in the forthcoming general elections.
“Chief Adams Oshiomhole and other leaders of our party are advised to comply with the directive of our dear President to clear the mess”. He stressed that “any attempt to sweep under the carpet, serious issues raised on the primaries by stakeholders, as they did with the outcome of the congresses will be disastrous. A Word, they say, is enough for the wise,” he emphasized.
