The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos state says the decision to elect its candidates for the 2019 elections through direct primaries has not changed.

Abiodun Salami, assistant publicity secretary of the party in the state, said this in an interview with NAN in Lagos.

He was reacting to the resolutions of meetings held in some states, where some chapters of the party opted to use direct primary, while others agreed on indirect primary.

The Ondo, Nasarawa, Zamfara, Plateau and the federal capital territory (FCT) chapters of the party have adopted indirect primary.

Kano state chapter, however, adopted the direct primary system, while Ogun and Kebbi chapters opted for selection by consensus.

Salami said adopting direct primary would ensure transparency in the selection of their candidates.

“We recently had our stakeholders’ meeting which had in attendance our leader Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and other party leaders and members, and we agreed on direct primary,” he said.

“We have also had subsequent meetings and we have upheld the use of the system. So ,our position has not changed.

“We are committed to internal democracy and we believe the direct primary would ensure transparency in the selection of our candidates.”

He urged members to register to get their party membership cards, saying the possession of the card would make them eligible to participate in the primary elections.
