All Progressives Congress, APC governors have agreed with the party’s decision to conduct a presidential primary instead of adopting a consensus option.
The decision was made public by Joe Igbokwe, an APC chieftain on Tuesday, May 24.
The governors agreed on a free and fair election for all the aspirants who purchased and submitted the nomination form.
This meeting came after a closed-door deliberation by the ruling party’s governors.
Igbokwe wrote on Facebook: “APC governors declare support for a presidential primary to be conducted, giving every aspirant who purchased the presidential form to contest in a free and fair process.”

MC Oluomo and seven others from collecting union dues and levies from commercial drivers that are non-union members in all motor parks in Lagos State.
Naija News reports that the judge issued the restrain on Tuesday.
