Adamawa APC governorship primary delay persists

All Progressives Congress (APC)

Election materials were yet to reach any ward even in the Yola and Jimeta communities of the Adamawa State capital as late as 6pm Friday,  the day for the governorship primary of the All Progressives (APC).


One of the three aspirants,  Dr Mamood Halilu Ahmed (Modi) who addressed the press about that time, expressed the fear that the election might not take place in far-flung communities that take much time and rigours to reach.


The primary election which was scheduled to take place last Sunday was rescheduled for Thursday, with the mode changed from indirect to direct primary, but the Thursday date proved impossible and the committee sent to conduct the process addressed the aspirants in the early hours of Friday and then told newsmen that a credible primary would be under way by mid- day, only for voting centres to remain idle well into the evening.


Modi, fielding questions from newsmen in his Mbamoi ward home in Yola town,  said the election committee seemed to be overwhelmed by the task in their hands,  and considering the limited time left for the election to be concluded and a candidate determined,  the committee, which comprises 20 members to conduct the election supposedly in 226 wards, might be forced to skip the election in some of the wards.
