2015: Kebbi APC to adopt consensus governorship candidate

All Progressives Congress

The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Kebbi State says it is working towards a consensus governorship candidate for the 2015 polls.

The party said each of the three senatorial districts would present an aspirant for screening before zeroing in on one candidate.

The Chairman of the Resolution Committee of the party, Suleiman Argungu, told journalists in Birnin-Kebbi on Sunday that whoever emerged of the three would be the party’s flagbearer in the election.

“The resolution committee will ensure each of the Senatorial Districts presents an aspirant out of the many aspirants,” he said.

Mr. Argungu said the 10 aspirants who had indicated interest to contest the governorship seat were expected to agree on only one.

:This will enable the party to avoid distractions and pool resources to defeat other parties’ candidates,” he said.

According to him, Kebbi North Senatorial District had adopted Ahmad Sama out of three other aspirants.

Kebbi South and Kebbi Central are expected to follow suit, he added.

Mr. Argungu said in spite of the arrangements the party was still committed to internal democracy, transparency and collective action.
