Today, a Faction of the Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress will conduct the direct mode of primaries in choosing the governorship candidate of the party in the state.
The Party Faction loyal to Senator Magnus Abe Said The direct primaries gets the people from the grassroots involved in deciding who the party candidate should be.
This is part of the steps proposed by President Buhari and the NEC of the All Progressives Congress to return power to the people who have completely been disenfranchised for too long, by their own circumstances on the one hand and their leaders’ perfidy on the other.
Direct primary’, a well recognized democratic culture the world over, is one of the very traditions that make the game of politics inclusive, interesting and thick. We cannot have it sacrificed on the unholy alter of sycophancy, godfatherism and desperation of any man to conquer Rivers State by all means.
The decision by the National Executive Council (NEC), the highest decision making body of the All Progressives Congress to get the people involved in choosing the candidates of the party in Rivers State is greeted with tremendous enthusiasm from the people. We thank the NEC of our party for recognizing that our politics must evolve and for doing all it could towards ensuring that evolution.
This decision reassures the people that even in the midst of the multitude of commercialized consciences, honest men still exist.
