The Governor of Kogi State and chairman of Ondo State All Progressives Congress (APC) Governorship Primary Election Committee, Ahmed Usman Ododo, has showered encomium on stakeholders and members of the ruling party for turning out massively and conducting themselves orderly during Saturday’s direct primary election in the state.  

Governor Ododo gave the commendation while receiving reports from members of the APC Governorship Primary Election Committee, security agencies and other stakeholders that monitored the conduct of the election in different parts of the 18 local government areas in the state.

 Ododo said: “I have received reports from our committee members and security agencies as well as NGOs monitoring the election including video footages and I can confirm that the process has been transparent. We are going to produce a candidate that will unify the APC ahead of the November 2024 governorship election in the state.”

 Reacting to the delay in arrival of materials in some wards and LGAs, Governor Ododo said he was certain that the delay had no adverse effect on the conduct of the primary election. 

He also expressed confidence that concerns noticed in the revalidated membership list would not also have any major impact on the outcome of the primary election.

He stressed that the committee was well guided by the APC guidelines for the nomination of candidates for general elections and relevant provisions of the Electoral Act, 2022. 

The Kogi State first citizen called on the aspirants and their supporters to see the primary election as a contest among brothers and sisters seeking to make the family better as candidates of the party in the November 2024 governorship election in Ondo State.
