A former Chairman of the Ondo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, Isaac Kekemeke, has identified direct primary as the best option to elect the candidate of the party ahead of the October governorship election.

Kekemeke, who is a governorship aspirant of the party, also confirmed that the majority of the stakeholders of the party supported direct primary in the state.

He stated this while speaking with journalists in Akure, the state capital on Saturday.

The National Working Committee of the APC had chosen direct primary for Edo State but was yet to make a decision on the mode of primary in Ondo State.

Kekemeke, a former Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice in the state, explained that the direct mode of primaries would be the best for the state going by the controversies that surrounded the emergence of party officials at the last congresses in the state.

He said, “We need to carry along very many interest groups in the party. We need a direct primary. We can establish protocols that enable people in their wards to gather and elect who they want by observing social distancing and making the use of face mask compulsory.

“I know that the direct primary is the preferable option. It is inevitable for victory and success of the party.”

The former APC chairman said after the last congresses of the party, there had not been unity in the party.
