Okorocha’s planned mock primaries in APC generates heat



GOVERNOR Rochas Okorocha’s desire to conduct mock primaries for loyalists of All Progressives Congress, APC, wishing to stand for any elective office, has started generating a lot of heat within the party.

Respondents on the issue told Vanguard yesterday that; the planned exercise would be null and void and of no effect, if the governor goes ahead to conduct the mock primaries.

A party official from one of the 27 local council areas of the state, who spoke on strict condition of anonymity yesterday, said that “mock primary is alien to APC Constitution.

“This man (Okorocha) does a lot of weird things with impunity. How can he start talking about mock primaries, when we don’t have such a thing in the party constitution? This is worrisome”, the officer said.
