The All Progressives Congress (APC) has written to Police Inspector-General Mohammed Adamu and the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 for clearance to conduct it’s governorship primary in Edo State.
Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State met with the IGP yesterday in connection with preparation for the primary which is scheduled for Monday in Benin.
The National Secretary of the party, Arc. Waziri Bulama, said yesterday that the party was set for the Edo governorship primary.
“There is calm and normalcy now at the National Headquarters of our party and we are prepared for the governorship primary election in Edo State. There is excitement and confidence in and around the secretariat,” he told The Nation.
“Our operation and administration are going on unperturbed by political turmoil and squabbling because the National Working Committee is united to protect the party from disintegration.
“For a rancor-free primary, we have written the IGP for adequate security for members of the Primary Election Committee, headed by Governor Hope Uzodinma; the Primary Election Appeal Committee, led by Prof. Mustapha Bello; and members of the APC in Edo State.
A member of the NWC said: “In fact, to show our commitment to a peaceful primary election, Governor Babagana Zulum met with the Inspector-General of Police to provide adequate security.
“The police also reinforced security on Friday at the national secretariat of APC as a matter of routine security surveillance.”
