The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State has resolved to adopt indirect primaries as the selection method for its aspirants ahead of the 2019 general elections in the state.

The Rivers State chapter of the APC took the decision after a vote by chieftains of the party in an expanded State Executive Committee, SEC, meeting held at the party secretariat along Aba road in Port Harcourt.

The Senator Representing Rivers East Senatorial District, Senator Andrew Uchendu, former Deputy Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Leyii Kwanee among other executive members of the party, said they opted for the indirect primaries because of the complex nature of direct primaries.

They said the APC in Rivers state may have to deal with gathering data of all its members especially at a time when more people are joining the APC.

According to Kwanee, “If we adopt direct primaries we have to deal with logistics, data collection and insecurity. That may mumble up the process.

“Apart from that, you could see that it was a collective decision. Some people think we should have a consensus candidate, a few others voted for direct primaries but over 100 of us voted for the indirect primaries. I think it is in the best interest of the party. The ultimate goal is for APC to come out victorious in 2019.”

On his part, the state chairman of APC, Ojukaye Flag-Amachree, at the end of the meeting, told newsmen that the decision to hold the state executive committee meeting to take a position of the issue of party primaries, was in line with directives at the National Executive Committee meeting of the Party in Abuja.

Flag-Amachree said he was going to report back the decision of the party to carry on with indirect primaries to the National Executive Committee for the sake of transparency and justice in the party.

Meanwhile, the Senator Magnus Abe’s faction of the APC are not relenting on who leads the party in Rivers state.

A notice from the Abe faction of the APC signed by Prince Peter Odike invited members of the State Executive Council of the party to a meeting on Friday 7th September, 2018.

The notice of the meeting reads, “On behalf of the State Working Committee, I wish to invite members of the State Executive Committee of the All Progressives Congress, Rivers State to a crucial meeting scheduled for Friday 7th September 2018, at the State party Secretariat,173 Aba Road, Catholic Mission Estate, Port Harcourt.”

Senator Magnus Abe has been in a running battle with the Minister for Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, over the decision of the former to contest the governorship election in Rivers state, an ambition Amaechi has blatantly refused to support.
