APC members protest Audu’s victory in Kogi primaries

03 September 2015, 11:08

Abuja - Hundreds of protesters on Wednesday stormed the national secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja, reports The Sun.

The protesters are demanding that the party reverse the emergence of the former Kogi State governor, Abubakar Audu as the APC flag bearer in the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Kogi State.

The members alleged that Audu has a case with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and therefore, should be barred from flying the party’s ticket.

The protesters who almost shut down the party’s secretariats carried placards with boldly inscriptions like “Kogi State say no to Audu”, “We need a credible leader in Kogi” among others, were also seen throwing stone at Audu’s supporters within the party secretariat premises.

Leader of the protesters, Suleiman Muhammad, noted that Audu’s ongoing case with the EFCC was enough to disqualify him from the contest.

Audu had on Saturday emerged the party flag bearer ahead the November 21governorship election in Kogi State, beating 27 other aspirants.
