Ahead of the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary for Osun State fixed for next week Thursday for the September 22 election, party members are still uncertain on the option the Comrade Adams Oshiomhole led National Working Committee would use to conduct the primary.
Speaking with newsmen at the end of the NWC meeting on Friday, national publicity secretary of the ruling party, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi said no decision has been taken on any of the options. He, however, said that a position would be taken on Monday.
The mode of selecting the candidate has sharply divided the party in the state with a side led by the Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Moshood Adeoti insisting on use of delegates as done in all previous elections.
Another faction said to be led by the governor, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola and his Chief of Staff, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola are pushing for a direct primary which would entail having all members of the party in the 332 wards voting.
Addressing the party faithful on Wednesday while inaugurating the non-national working committee members the national chairman of the party had dropped the hint that three options were open to the party in the choice of its candidate: direct, indirect primaries and consensus.
