Ahead of a meeting between the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and the party’s governors to resolve unsettled issues arising from the mode of selection of the party’s candidates, it emerged at the weekend that Oshiomhole could be heading for a public spat with his successor, Godwin Obaseki on the issue.
The Edo State chapter of the APC it emerged is pushing for a consensus arrangement against Oshiomhole’s injunction for the use of direct primaries for the selection exercise.
The Bayelsa State chapter of the party has, however, adopted the direct primary option as advanced by Oshiomhole.
Stakeholders in the Anambra State chapter have, however, opted for the consensus arrangement as canvassed by several other states.
