The Borno state chapter of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) has adopted the indirect mode of primaries for all the elective positions for the 2019 elections.

This is despite the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) declaration on September 1 that all primary elections for elective offices would be through direct primaries except where impediments would make it impossible.

“The use of indirect primaries is conditional and dependent on logistic impediments, peculiarities and the needs that make a given state unable to use direct primaries,” APC acting national publicity secretary, Yekini Nabena, stated.

However, the Borno chapter of the party on Tuesday said it has chosen to adopt indirect primaries to elect its candidates.

Their decision was an outcome of a stakeholders meeting involving 37 executive members of APC in Borno, serving and former senators, serving and former members of the House of Representatives, serving and former Borno state deputy Governors among others.

The APC said the reason for adopting the indirect mode of primaries is to consolidate on the existing peace in the state.

Borno APC Chairman, Ali Bukar Dalori said after due consultation with stakeholders, the executives of the party settled for indirect primaries for every elective position in the state.

The Speaker of the state assembly, Abdulkarim Lawa,l who spoke on behalf of other 28 members cited security challenges, among others as the reason for adopting the indirect primaries by his members.

Charman, caucus of Members of House of Representatives at the National Assembly from Borno, Mohammed Tahir Monguno expressed members support on the decision of the state exco for the adoption of Indirect Primaries.

Senators representing northern Borno senatorial District, Senator Abu Kyari, senator representing southern Borno senatorial district, Senator Ali Ndume all supported the motion for the adoption of the indirect Primaries.
