The All Progressives Congress (APC) has settled for the indirect mode of primaries for its July electoral exercise for the upcoming Ondo governorship election.

Chairman of the Election Committee and Kogi Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello,made this disclosure to journalists at the National Secretariat in Abuja shortly after his committee was inaugurated by National Chairman of the Caretaker Committee and Yobe Governor, Mai Mala Buni.

Bello said: “On the issue of the mode of primary, this has been settled by the previous NWC and ratified by NEC, which gives the opportunity to the state executive committee to chose the mode of primary that they would want. This has been settled.

“The Ondo Primary election would be conducted via indirect mode. This was the option chosen by the Ondo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and ratified by the National Executive Committee (NEC) of our great party in the last meeting. So, we are going for indirect primary.”
