Bamidele urges APC to conduct free, fair primary


Opeyemi Michael Bamidele,

Former member of the House of Representatives, Michael Opeyemi Bamidele, has urged the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to ensure that they conduct a free and fair primary, to give room for reconciliation at the end of the exercise.

He warned aspirants jostling for the party’s governorship ticket against seeing the primary as a do- or-die contest.

The political parties participating in the governorship election, are expected to hold their primaries between March and April this year.

Bamidele, advised all other aspirants to run a clean campaign and realise that the governorship is not worth the blood of even one Ekiti person, because he said, anybody that does that may end up being cursed by the people.

The former Lagos Commissioner, said that he is contesting for the governorship of Ekiti State, because  of his passion for his people and the fact that he has  the requisite political experience for the position.

He stated this in Otun Ekiti in Moba Local Government Council of the state while addressing delegates yesterday in preparation for the primary.

The former federal lawmaker who is currently on a tour of the 16 local councils, in Ido Ekiti during the week said: ‘’Some people are worried about the number of aspirants’ jostling for the governorship position. It is a welcome development, even more aspirants would still come out.

‘’At least, when our members need help in their wards, they should able to support them.”
