AKURE—THE All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ondo State, said yesterday, that the debate on the option to be adopted for primaries into elective offices for both State and National Assembly has been contentious and that it is not jittery over the option.
In a statement by the party’s Assistant State Publicity Secretary, Oladimeji Ayodele, APC said the party, in Ondo State “is not jittery over direct primaries and is comfortable with any of the lawful options.”
The statement reads: “No doubt the discourse of the option to be adopted for the forthcoming APC primaries election into elective offices for both state and national assembly has been a contentious one in the political space.
“However, it is inappropriate for anyone to contemplate that the leader of the party in the State and our dear Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, in particular, is jittery over whichever option adopted.
“Disharmony does not exist within the state chapter of the party. Furthermore, the leadership of Ondo State APC makes bold to say that it is still enjoying the support of the masses in Ondo State due to the people-oriented policies of the present administration.
“The party, therefore, has nothing to fear regardless of any option (direct or indirect) adopted for its primaries.”
