“Records and documentary evidences are abound everywhere that APC did not conduct primaries in Zamfara state, due to the stubborn attitude of the state governor who threatened publicly to send Oshiomhole to the graveyard if he dares him.
“Oshiomhole at the peak of the controversy affirmed the fact that, no primaries was conducted in the media, his famous video of “primaries are to be conducted not by state governments nor by state party chairmen but by the panels sent by the party’s NWC,” is still very much available on the net.
“Equally available is INEC’s letter to him (Chief Oshiomhole) that they receive reports from their local office in Gusau that APC didn’t conduct valid primaries as at 12:am Sunday 7th October 2019.
“It was based on this fact that INEC said it wasn’t expecting candidates from APC and you Chief Oshiomhole responded by accepting the fact that APC didn’t conduct primaries but you did consensus! A simple google search will amplify these facts. Fact is APC leadership at our state level has failed and nothing can change that fact!
