Governorship primaries: Kogi delegates seek court order to restraining APac from adopting indirect election

Published

Four delegates in the forthcoming APC primary election in Kogi, on Thursday, approached the Federal High Court Abuja, seeking an order to stop the party from adopting an indirect mode of election in selecting its governorship candidate.

They are members of the State Executive Committee for the the poll, which is scheduled to take place on Aug. 29.

The All Progressive Congress (APC) is the defendant in the case.

Counsel to the applicants, Oluwole Aladedoye, told the court that the planned indirect election was a move to shut out his clients from participating in the poll.

Justice Taiwo, however, adjourned the matter until  Friday, Aug. 9, for hearing.
