Presidency orders NWC to deliver Aiyedatiwa amid protests, petitions over credentials

Ahead of the primary election later this month for the Ondo State governorship election,  fresh crisis appears to be creeping into  the fold of All Progressives Congress (APC) as its leaders and chieftains are sharply divided over the choice of anointed aspirants to fly the party’s flag.

According to the revised edition of the timetable and schedule of activities released recently by the APC National Working Committee (NWC), the party primary for the Ondo election will hold on April 20, while the main election comes up later in the year, precisely on November 16.

In a bid  to avert the controversy that engulfed the ruling party after the conduct of the primary last month for the Edo State governorship election, the national leadership of the party, had last week, constituted a nine-man committee, comprising members of the NWC, to oversee the conduct of the Ondo primary election.

However, the factors that threw the party into crisis in Edo State, like rifts among  the party’s leadership and certain leaders of the party in the state, over anointing of aspirants, are already rearing their heads concerning Ondo.

A  chieftain of the party who does not want his name mentioned told Daily Sun that there is tension in the party over Ondo.

He said that there is a  looming crisis,  despite the fact that the presidency appears to have soft spot for   the incumbent governor. There are insinuation among party officials that the presidency has already asked the leadership  to deliver him during the primary. Some NWC members are discreetly opposed to that arrangement .

Our source further explained that though some NWC members who are against the choice of Aiyedatiwa are not rooting for other aspirants, they are, however, afraid that considering the volume and validity of petitions against the incumbent governor, electing him as the party’s candidate might scuttle the chances of the party fielding a candidate in the poll.
