The national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu has restated his commitment to ensuring a free, fair, credible and acceptable process in the determination of the gubernatorial candidate of Oyo APC in the 2023 general elections.
Senator Adamu made the assurance statement through his Personal Assistant, Prof. Abdullahi Yau, on Tuesday in Abuja.
He said, “It is untrue that some governorship aspirants have been asked to shelve their ambitions in favour of a particular aspirant. To the best of my knowledge, all APC governorship aspirants from Oyo State passed the screening exercise and they are qualified to contest the primary elections slated for May 26th Thursday, 2022.
“Senator Abdullahi Adamu-led APC is not giving room for imposition of candidates. The party is providing a level-playing ground for all aspirants to test their popularity and acceptability of party members. No individual will choose candidates for the generality of party members. The validly elected delegates will decide the fate of all aspirants.
“There will be no preferential treatment for any aspirants before, during and after the primary elections”, he stressed.
He concluded by urging all aspirants to accept the outcome of the forthcoming primary elections in good faith.
