The lawmaker also warned the APC leadership against manipulation of the party’s primaries.
Akpatason noted that direct primaries was not prone to manipulation like the indirect primaries in which delegates could be bribed.
According to him, whoever is planning to manipulate the primaries does not love the party hence the need to watch out for moles.
“Such a person wants the APC to lose in the main election. If this election is manipulated, chances of the APC winning the general elections will be slim.
“In a situation where you sit down and select people based on sentiments and not on individual popularity and ability to win elections, people will have other options,” he added.
