Taraba APC Dares Oshiomhole, Buhari, Adopts Indirect Primaries


The All Progressive Congress (APC) in Taraba State says it will adopt the indirect primary for choosing candidates for the 2019 general elections in the state.

Addressing journalists in Jalingo on Monday, the state chairman of the party, Mr Abdulmumini Vaki, said the indirect primary has been the culture of the party in the state and there is no plan to change it.

He added that their decision has been communicated to the National Executive Council of the party.

Several other states have also adopted the same method of electing candidates for positions in the party.

However, in Anambra State, the party adopted the consensus method.

The leadership of the party in the state said the choice of primary followed critical consultations among the party’s stakeholders.

It further explained that of the three options presented by the party’s National Executive Council, the consensus was accepted by the majority of the members, after which a committee was set up to commence operations.
