The discontent that trailed the recent conduct of primaries by the APC for various positions has continued in Niger State with aspirants for the state House of Assembly calling for the cancellation of the exercise.

A group of aspirants, in a petition made available to Daily Trust, said they are rejecting the outcome of the primaries and want a rerun of the exercise.

In a petition to the state party chairman, Engineer Jibrin Iman, signed by 30 out of the 62 aspirants, they alleged that the entire exercise was marred by violence, intimidation and all forms of threats to life.

According to them, a particular instance was the violence and intimidation that characterised the conduct of the primary election in Chanchaga constituency where they accused the party of manipulating the process in favour of the incumbent who doubles as Speaker of the State House of Assembly,  Ahmed Marafa Guni.
