Senator Shehu Sani yesterday led other aspirants for various offices from Kaduna State and presented a petition to the national leadership of the APC on the need to have direct primaries. Senator Sani, who said the use of direct primary was the only way to show support for President Muhammadu Buhari’s fight against corruption, added that the proponents of indirect primary for the nomination of candidates for the various offices ahead of the general elections were pursuing an agenda that was at variance to the commitment of the president.
The lawmaker faulted the argument about security concern as purportedly adduced by the governor of Kaduna State in his opposition to direct primary, warning that violence might be orchestrated during the primary to justify opposition to such mode of election.
