The All Progressives Congress may have read the riot act to governors like Ogun State Governor Ibikunle Amosun and others who are picking the party’s governorship candidate through a consensus arrangement.
In a statement signed by Acting National Publicity Secretary Nabena and entitled “APC: Conditions for Consensus Candidature,” the party said:
“The attention of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been drawn to announcements of consensus candidates for elective positions in some states.
It is therefore pertinent to make some clarifications to enlighten Party faithful on the procedure for nominating candidates.
While consensus is provided for by the Party’s Constitution, the option is conditional.
Consensus does not foreclose Direct or Indirect Primaries for all elective positions as contained in the resolution of the 6th meeting of the Party’s National Executive Committee (NEC).
Again, consensus will apply when no other aspirant signify interest (i.e. through purchase of nomination forms) for the position in question” .
