8,000 delegates to converge in Lagos for APC presidential primary

Seated on his left is Mr. Sam Nda Isiah, while on his right are Gov. Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and former Head of State Muhammadu Buhari all APC presidential aspirants.

The All Progressives Congress, APC, is expecting more than 8,000 delegates in Lagos for its presidential primary election coming up on December 10 and 11.

The Chairman of the APC National Convention Committee, Olukayode Fayemi, made this known on Wednesday while giving an update to newsmen on the committee’s work.

The choice of venue had been an issue of debate as some aspirants wanted the election to hold in Lagos while others preferred Abuja.

Mr. Fayemi said: “We are expecting more than 8,000 delegates all over the country – both elected and statutory delegates.

“As you are already aware, our convention takes place on Dec. 10 and 11.

“We did not arrive at the choice of Lagos accidentally or serendipitously; we arrived at Lagos with the full input of all our presidential aspirants.

“Yes, concerns were raised about distance especially for someone moving from Yobe; the duty I had was to convince them.

“By the time we explained to them the processes that we have put in place, they were happy and they have given us the full cooperation.”

Mr. Fayemi said that all aspirants had also been briefed about all processes to ensure a hitch-free, secure, transparent and credible presidential primary.

“Those interested in democracy in this country will have the opportunity to watch it live on television, listen live on radio and to follow us online,” he said. (NAN)

  • sir Oscie

    Atiku and him only is the leader/Statesman we know, love and want for #ANigeriaForAll to be possible.

    • Aki and Popo

      But you are an ardent supporter of Jona. So it is obvious that you would want Atiku. But, sorry, your dreams will turn to a nightmare because, hey! Buhari is coming….and Sir Oscie is afraid, sorely afraid!

      As soon as Buhari gets that ticket, you will see a tsunami of public goodwill. The revolutionary change of power will start. It will become obvious from that very minute that PDP are on their way out of Aso Rock!

      • sir Oscie

        10th Dec. is by the corner watch and see Atiku send the military dictator to the cleaners. Is Atiku2015 my friend….

  • Oluseun Doherty

    APC if you want to win this election make sure you give it to Buhari. None of the former PDP members ATIKU or Kwankwaso can defeat jona.

  • wode

    Fingers kept crossed.

  • PROF

    HAHA , a congregation of losers and clowns

    • Dr. Kay

      You are in the wrong profile, you supposed to have logged into PDP Dumbo’s site that’s where losers ,clowns, clueless imbeciles and arse holes boku boku. You must be recovering from the ogogoro stupor you unleashed on yourself after receiving ego for your previous e-rat postings, oloshi, suegbe, sunganmun,eranko.

      • PROF

        Dr Kay ,you such an asssss wipe, what a joke you have become. 🙂

  • tuco

    Pls, pls and pls, i beg everyone to keep religion, sentiment and tribalism or whatever aside and vote wisely. Vote the best candidate come 2015. Let us not allow sentiments to guide our thinking. There is no iota of doubt that Buhari is the best candidate among all of them including the pdp. He is clean, tested and trusted. He has what it takes to take naija to the promise land. Haba now, the sufferings and hardship should be at all cost put on hold in order to have a better future for ourselves, children, grandchildren and unborn generations to come. Give Buhari the mandate of just one term of 4yrs, and i assure you you shall see wonders. Pls vote wisely without sentiments and let’s move this nation forward. Enough is enough. YES WE CAN. God bless Nigeria.

    May the best man win the primary, I’d always known that nigeria will keep moving on when we have great/visionary men in APC, because that’s what APC stands for. We need a change and we are pursing it. Kudos to the best party

  • Smith Scott

    Atiku will be rolling out more than 20billion between now and 10th. Time to be APC delegate men!!!!!

  • Mr. Abdin

    This is a welcome development up APC.

  • Mr. Abdin

    The endorsement of Lagos by Atiku Abubakar as approved by the APC leadership is a welcome development as that has shown his level of maturity towards the development of Nigeria’s democracy. Carry on Turaki with your good work and Nigeria for all is what we believe on. We are Praying for a hitch free primaries up APC.

  • Concerned Citizen

    Finaly. Please do not screw this up. Whoever wins should be supported by the rest. Its time for PDP’s exit and you will need all the help you can get.
