National chairman of the All Progressives Congres, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has said the Edo State Governorship primaries will proceed as planned.

Oshiomhole made this statement while speaking to reporters after the National Working Committee met with governors elected on the platform of the APC, in Abuja, on Monday.

In response to a question that the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has rejected the direct primary mode for his state, Oshiomhole asked the reporter to “stop spreading rumours.”

He added, “Obaseki is not here but issues of primaries are well spelt out in our constitution and we are following it as strictly as positive. So, nothing to worry about at all.

You are speculating (on Obaseki’s rejection of direct primaries), I don’t have any letter or document to that effect. These are very formal matters. Stop spreading rumours.”

Also speaking after the meeting, the Chairman of the Progressive Governors Forum, Abubakar Bagudu, said the meeting was held to discuss issues “affecting the party”.

According to The PUNCH, the governors made a case for the use of the indirect primaries but no agreement was reached.

Governors who attended the meeting included Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo), Abdullahi Ganduje(Kano), Simon Lalong (Plateau), and Babajide Sanwu-Olu (Lagos), among others.
