The cracks within the Kogi State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) appear to be widening after Prof. Seidu Onailo Mohammed alleged a plot to disqualify front-line aspirants, including himself, from contesting the forthcoming governorship elections in the state.

Prof. Mohammed revealed that much on Sunday in an open letter to the APC National Working Committee, sent through the director of communication of his campaign organisation, Moses Abdullahi.

In the letter, Prof. Mohammed said he had particularly received reports of plans by the APC to disqualify him, Vice Admiral Jibrin Usman and Mohammed Abubakar Audu to pave the way for Governor Yahaya Bello’s emergence.

“Let’s put on record that we, and indeed all lovers of democracy were shocked at the announcement of the party’s indirect mode of primary election billed for August 29 even when the composition of the State Executive of the APC is still a subject of litigation in suit number FHC/ABJ1CS158112018 and a majority of members of the party are favorably disposed to the direct form of primary election.

“We therefore implore the Adams Oshiomhole-led NWC to learn from the avoidable losses we recorded in Rivers and Zamfara States so as to avoid the repeat of those ugly scenarios and eventually build a durable democracy in Nigeria for posterity and future politicians”, the letter read in part.
