Former Minister of Works and the National Chairman, Southwest Agenda for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu 2023 presidential ambition (SWAGA), Dayo Adeyeye, has urged the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to adopt direct primary for the 2022 Ekiti State governorship candidate.

He argued that it would be a fatal mistake for APC to allow unpopular individual to be imposed on them during the January 27 primary meant to elect the candidate that would fly the party’s flag.

He said this in Ado Ekiti, yesterday, while declaring his intention to contest the Ekiti governorship poll on the platform of APC.

Before addressing supporters at the Prince Adedayo Adeyeye Movement office.

BESIDES, ahead of the January 27 primaries of the APC, an aspirant and former Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Biodun Oyebanji, urged his supporters to continue to market his policies and programmes and avoid joining issues with the opposition.

Oyebanji, who restated his commitment to running an issue-based campaign, urged his supporters to focus more on development, competence, character, capacity and track record, among others.

MEANWHILE, APC chieftains led by Senator Ajibola Bashir, yesterday, reaffirmed their position to ensure the reelection of Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola.

Bashir, who was accompanied by several members of the National Assembly and appointees of the state, procured the N22.5 million expression of interest and nomination forms for the governor at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja.

The party chieftains declared that Oyetola had performed and deserved to be reelected, maintaining that none of the aspirants for the governorship position could withstand Oyetola at the poll.

Asked whether Oyetola’s reelection bid would not be threatened by his feud with the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, he said the current structure of APC would win the reelection for the incumbent governor and not individuals.
