The All Progressives Congress (APC) has disclosed that the party has no special interest in any of the twelve aspirants that have shown interest in flying the party’s flag in the forthcoming governorship election in Anambra State.
The primary election is slated for Saturday August 26 in Awka, with 12 aspirants contesting the ticket.
National Organising Secretary of the party, Osita Izunazo, made this known Tuesday during the inauguration of the party’s governorship primary election committee in Anambra.
Osita emphasized that the party did not zone the governorship ticket to any Senatorial zone in the State, adding that such information should be disregarded.
“We are having slightly above 4,500 delegates from the 21 Local Government Areas of the State and 326 electoral wards, 12 delegates per wards and 26 delegates per LGA and statutory delegates from the state to the national level.”
Responding, Borno State governor and the Chairman of the primary election committee, Kashim Shettima, assured that his panel shall “strictly abide by the instructions given to us by the party, the road map is very clear, there is a modus operandi for accreditation and of course it is not rocket science. The list of the accredited delegates has been given to us and we shall abide by all the norms and values laid down by the party.”
While thanking the party’s leadership for the confidence reposed in his committee, Shettima said that Anambra State remains a major rallying point in the country´s political calculation.
