APC in Niger still united – Chairman
Alhaji Mohammed Imam, Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC) in Niger, says the party is still united despite recent petition alleging misappropriation of funds by some members of the state executive.
Imam stated this on Tuesday in Minna after an extended meeting with members of the party at the state and local government levels.
The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that the state Financial Secretary of the APC, Malam Idris Gbongon, had recently petitioned the police alleging that the chairman and other executive members misappropriated funds accruing to the party.
“The APC has set out mechanisms to re-strategise and ensure that the party remain united.
“We will not allow factions in the APC in Niger or to be subdued by anyone, no matter the position the person holds, as the party remains a supreme body,” he said.
Imam said that party had properly documented all the monies it had spent.
“No money is lost. We have been running the system in the most transparent manner, in fact, we run it as if it is a Ministry. We have been prudent in resource management.
“The party has three signatories and the financial secretary who wrote that petition is one of the signatories and he has been the one writing the cheques,” he said.
He added that the financial secretary had never been sidelined any anyway as he had always participated in all meetings and party activities.
He pointed out that the financial secretary was being mischievous, saying that a five-man committee has been set up by the party to give fair hearing to all parties involved and submit their report in one week.
“This is an internal issue and we have internal mechanisms for conflict resolution which have been employed.
“A committee has been set up to give everyone fair hearing and they will submit their report in a week time,” he said.
On the party’s relationship with the executive in the state, Imam said that it was cordial, “but the party should be consulted on some issues that affect it.”
Kwara Assembly swears-in new APC member
Ahmed Rufai, the newly elected member of the Kwara House of Assembly representing Patigi State Constituency, was on Tuesday sworn-in by the Speaker, Yakubu Danladi.
The Assembly, however, had yet to swear-in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Jimoh Raheem-Agboola, who was directed by the State Election Tribunal to take over the seat of the APC member for Ilorin South Constituency, AbdulAzeez Elewu- Oluwanilo.
Raheem-Agboola, in company with scores of PDP supporters in the state, had on three occasions stormed the House for the implementation of the court judgment without success.
But addressing journalists on Tuesday on why the PDP candidate was not sworn-in, the Chairman, House Committee on Information, Mr Olumide Awolola, said Raheem-Agboola as plaintiff did not join the present occupant of the seat, Abdulazeez Elewu-Oluwanilo, in the suit he filed.
APC has done well for South East, says Igbokwe
He made the statement in Ikeja while speaking with newsmen during the inauguration of new executives of Ndigbo APC in Lagos State.
Igbokwe, also the Special Adviser to Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Drainage and Water Resources, urged more people from the South East to join the APC as the party meant well for the region and the country in general.
“I do not think there is any project bigger than the Second Niger Bridge in Nigeria now; the bridge is getting to completion.
“I know that by next year, the government would have finished the bridge. The same bridge that was used to dupe our people for 22 years will soon be completed,” he said.
Igbokwe said the inauguration of the executives was to further strengthen Ndigbo in APC Lagos to take the party to greater heights both in the state and at the national level.
He added that the group had the mandate to mobilise Ndigbo for the APC to ensure the party’s continued foothold in Lagos and the nation.
Igbokwe charged the new executives to discharge their duties without let or hinderance and ensure the growth of the party “from strength to strength”.
He dismissed reports in some quarters that there was division in Ndigbo APC in Lagos State.
The governor’s aide said that whoever was parading himself as apex leader of Ndigbo in Lagos APC outside of the group was an imposter as the group was not factionalized.
He called for support for Gov. Sanwoolu, saying the governor was doing his best to take the state to greater heights.
Speaking on behalf of the newly inaugurated executives, the Coordinator, Chief Uche Dimgba, thanked all members of the group, particularly Igbokwe, for the confidence reposed in them.
He also thanked the National Leader of APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, for giving all members of the party a sense of belonging.
Dimgba promised that he and other executive members of the Ndigbo in Lagos APC would do their best to move the party forward.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports the 15-member executive include Chief Chris Ekwulo(Deputy Coordinator);Princess Oby Onu(Women Leader);Chief Uche Babatata(Organising Secretary);and Mr Leo Obasi(Assistant Youth Leader).
Ondo 2020: Group endorses Kekemeke for APC governorship primaries
Ijabiyi said the group reached the unanimous agreement to adopt Kekemeke as its candidate for APC in the coming primary election after a critical assessment of all the aspirants.
“It took us sometime to zero in on Kekemeke; we carried out a painstaking assessment of each of them.
“At the end of it all, we have no difficulty at all in arriving at the conclusion that Kekemeke is the best,” the group said.
“Kekemeke was a member of the House óf Assembly, chairman of a major national parastatal, Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Commissioner for Works, Lands, Housing and Transport as well as Secretary to the State Government.
“At party level, he was pioneer State Secretary of the PDP, pioneer State Chairman of APC.
“Kekemeke is, therefore, an experienced government man and party chieftain. No other aspirant has this kind of intimidating pre-election credential,” the group said.
Ijabiyi described Kekemeke as “a man of great competence with ability to combine pragmatism with intellectualism to plan, execute and deliver.
“A man imbued with clear-headedness, deep thinking, creative mind, a moral and spiritual icon, a no-nonsence disciplinarian and dogged fighter, calculating and methodical. That man is Isaac Kekemeke.”
The group said that Ondo State has a long tradition and understanding of geopolitical rotation, adding that Kekemeke from Southern Senatorial District would win the October 10 governorship poll for APC.
“Our direct opponent is PDP. To defeat the party, we must field our best man, a man that carries no public liabilities or controversies, a man that can attract the votes of the people and that man is Kekemeke,” the group said.
Ijabiyi said that the group would agressively work for Kekemeke’s victory at the primary election and spare nothing to see him through at the October 10 governorship poll.
APC NWC approves direct primaries for Edo election
The National Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Adams Oshiomhole, says the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) has approved direct primaries for the June 22, Edo governorship poll.
Oshiomhole said this on Monday at a news conference shorty after meeting with APC Governors Forum led by Gov. Abubakar Bagudu of Kebbi, at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja.
He added that the party’s NWC was yet to discuss and decide on the mode of primaries for Ondo Governorship election slated for July 20.
“We have since published our time table because under the law, we are required to give Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) at least 21 days notice to monitor our primaries.
“And to state the mode of our primaries and of course NWC had approved direct primaries for Edo.
“That of Ondo has not been discussed because that will come much later, because Edo will come about three weeks before Ondo,” the party chairman said.
He said that the party had begun the sale of expression of interest and nomination forms, adding that other processes had also been going fine.
“We have commenced the sale of forms, I think as of last Friday to my knowledge three people had picked the forms.
“I think by today more people have picked the forms. So, we are selling forms to all those who wish to buy based on the guidelines.
“And of course as the Chairman of the Progressives Governors rightly said, we have ensured in our letter to INEC and even this morning we had a virtual meeting with INEC leadership.
“We will conduct primaries taking into account the protocols on Covid-19 by the Presidential Task Force (PTF) and Nigeria Commission for Disease Control (NCDC). I think everything has been going fine,” he said.
According to him, governors are assets to our party and once a candidate emerged, we all work and ensure that we do our best to persuade the people in the respective states to favour us with their votes.
“I am sure that by the special grace of God, the Ondo Governor is here, he did well and electorate are more sophisticated now, so we have no fear about that.
“Obaseki is not here but issues of primaries are well spelt out in our constitution and we are following it as strictly as possible. So nothing to worry about at all,” Oshiomhole said.
Earlier, Bagudu said the purpose of the meeting was to discuss issues between the Governor’s Forum and party leadership that would lead to the progress of the APC.
Edo APC Primaries: Obaseki visits Aso Villa, seeks Buhari’s blessing
President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday met behind closed door with Gov. Godwin Obaseki of Edo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports the meeting which was at the instance of the governor, came ahead of the governorship primary election of the All Progressives Congress (APC), scheduled for June, 2020.
Speaking to State House correspondents at the end of the meeting, Obaseki said he was in the Presidential Villa to formally intimate the president of his intention to seek re-election as governor of Edo on the platform of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
The governor, who is believed to be at loggerhead with the APC National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiohmole, over his second term ambition, presented his Expression of Interest form to the president for blessing.
“I came to see Mr President to formally inform him of my desire and intention to seek re-election as governor of Edo State on the platform of the APC in the forthcoming gubernatorial election.
“As a father of the country, as our president I should not just assume or take things for granted – I have to come to inform him and solicit his support in my gubernatorial bid, and the president was quiet warm and quiet welcoming.
“When I showed him my Expression of Interest form, he looked through it and teased me that he would not have to go through this again and wished me good luck and assured me of his support,’’ he said.
On the political tussle in Edo, the governor stated that the crisis was being instigated from outside the state.
Obaseki also described the political misunderstanding between him and Oshiohmole as very unfortunate, saying however that he was ready to reach a truce with all aggrieved members of the APC.
“It is unfortunate that he (Oshiohmole) is taking the position he has taken. I believe that he was not properly guided.
“I am his Governor and it is my responsibility to seek peace for my State and with all my citizens.
“I will continue to strive for peace, I will continue to pursue peace, seek the interest of our people and I am open, that we should talk about how to move things forward.
“The relationship is still frosty but I am doing all I can to try and make it warm just for the sake of Edo people. I am committed to whatever it will take to have peace and not to lose lives in Edo, within the law, whatever I can do that is constitutional, I will do,’’ he stated.
According to the governor, he has the full support of his counterparts, all the governors elected on the platform of the APC, in line with the principles of the party, which encourages continuity.

Edo Guber: Ex-lawmaker advocates direct primary election for APC
Ahead of the Governorship Election in Edo. former Deputy Chief Whip of the House of Representatives, Mr Pally Iriase, has recommended direct primary election for the All Progressives Congress (APC).
In a statement in Abuja, Iriase said that the direct primary election would be more effective and would conform more with COVID-19 guidelines.
According to him, a study of the processes involved in indirect primaries’ as contained in the APC Constitution, shows that the indirect method remains the safest way to protect voters during this Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Iriase said that Article 20 (iv) (a), provided that indirect primaries should be conducted at a designated venue by an electoral college of delegates.
He said the constitution provided that delegates shall be democratically elected by members of the party at their various Ward Congresses.
The APC chieftain however, noted that there were no permanent elected delegates under the party’s constitution for the exercise.
He explained that only Statutory Delegates, as defined in the constitution under Article 20 (iv) (c) should join elected delegates to constitute the electoral college for indirect primaries.
“After the direct election of delegates in the foregoing paragraph, all members of the electoral college, that is, elected delegates plus statutory delegates, will move to the designated venue for the indirect primaries.
“It is therefore clear that we will have to do direct election of delegates first in order to have proper indirect primaries.
“I submit that you cannot circumvent this process in Edo presently, without dire consequences.
“The atmosphere is charged, and anything outside the provisions of the party’s constitution will not work,” he said.
“You cannot use the badly factionalised party executives as surrogates in place of elected delegates, because there is no constitutional backing for that at all,” he added.
Iriase explained that direct primaries required that all party members in each ward, who would have voted for delegates, would rather vote for aspirants.
He said that they would easily turnout in their units within the wards, observe social distancing, wearing facemasks and vote for the aspirant of their choice.
According to him, direct primary election is better than the indirect method which requires two tedious stages with huge but avoidable health challenges.
Edo APC: Former Speaker seeks Buhari intervention
A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Edo, Alhaji Kabiru Adjoto, has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to step into the party’s crisis in the state.
Adjoto, who was a former Speaker of the state House of Assembly, made the appeal on Monday in Benin while receiving the party leaders from Edo north.
The APC chieftain said that the president’s intervention would ensure the victory of the party in the September governorship election in the state.
Adjoto, noted that the crisis rocking the party in the state was becoming increasingly embarrassing.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has fixed the primaries for the Edo governorship election for June 22, while the gubernatorial election will hold on Sept. 19.
The development has stoked the battle of supremacy between the two factions of the APC in the state.
Adjoto, however, said that “the resolution of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party empowers state chapters to choose a mode of primaries based on peculiarities.
“Edo state APC stakeholders have met and agreed on an indirect mode of primaries as the most suitable in the face of COVID-19 and for the fact that the state chapter lacks a comprehensive register of members,’’ he said.
He urged the president and other stakeholders to dialogue with the National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, to avert the party being defeated in the September election.
“Obaseki’s victory is certain and he is constant as the Northern star. All those opposing him within and outside the party will eventually bow and vote for him.
“My advice to the National Working Committee (NWC) of APC is to play by the rules to avoid plunging Edo into crisis,’’ Adjoto said.
APC primary: Steer clear of Ondo politics, group tells Gov. Fayemi
The Coordinator of the group, Mr Tunde Ajayi, made the call in a statement on Monday in Akure.
Ajayi said that there have been pressure on the leadership of the APC to impose indirect mode of primary against the wishes of majority of the party member in the state.
“The attention of the Ondo State Progressives Network has been drawn to series of moves to lure some national leaders of the APC and some governors to mount pressure on the national working committee to announce an indirect primaries for the election.
“The Network, therefore, advise that leaders of the party in Ondo State and at the national level should be allowed to act appropriately.
“The group also condemn any move which will thwart the unity of the party in the state,” he said.
The coordinator advised Akeredolu to adopt the party’s leadership process rather than seeking to get an indirect primary process.
“We further appeal to the leadership of the party and members of the national working committee not to be intimidated.
“Only a direct primary process in the party’s guber primary can restore the hope of APC faithful in the state and move the party to the next level,” Ajayi said.
Meanwhile, Ondo State Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mr Donald Ojogo, earlier in a statement, said that the governor was not afraid of direct primary.
“First and foremost, we have not come out as a government that we are opposed to direct primary; neither had the governor expressed aversion to same.
“We’re not afraid of any mode of primary. I will want the public to know that the call for direct primary is to put out narrative that the governor is opposed to direct primary. In fact, we’ll even prefer a direct primary.
“For those who clamour for direct primary, the message to them is that Akeredolu is more prepared for any mode of primary than those who clamour for it,” Ojogo said.
