Eleven aspirants have been cleared to contest the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary election in Ondo State.
One aspirant was however disqualified by the screening committee.
This was disclosed by Alhaji Tijani Tumusa, Chairman of the Screening Committee while presenting the report of the exercise to the National Secretary of the party’s Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee (CEONCPC) at the party National Secretariat in Abuja.
Naija News reports the APC governorship primary is scheduled for July 20, 2020.
However, as at press time, the reason and identity of the disqualified aspirant was yet to be revealed.
Meanwhile, eleven governorship aspirants from the party have jointly rejected the choice of indirect primaries for the forthcoming governorship primary.
They have also sent a formal letter to the party’s Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee (CEONCPC) rejecting the indirect mode of the primary election on July 20.
It was gathered that the letter dated 8th, July 2020, was submitted by Chief Olusola Oke, one of the aspirants on behalf of others.
