Buhari to meet Ondo APC aspirants ahead of primaries

29 August 2016, 14:43

Abuja - President Muhamamdu Buhari is expected to meet with the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidates for the November 20 election in Abuja ahead of Saturday’s primary election, reports Guardian

The meeting is to ensure a rancour-free governorship primary in the state.

An earlier meeting convened by the national secretariat of the party last weekend, failed to assuage the bickering as many aspirants have vowed to resist any imposition.

There has been tension in the party in the state following accusations that one of the candidates of the party has been endorsed by the national leader of the party, Bola Tinubu according to News 24 

The state Chairman of the party, Isaac Kekemeke was removed because of this accusation.

The meeting is expected to hold either on Monday or Tuesday.
