APC Indirect Primaries: Shehu Sani Reveals What Will Happen


Senator Shehu Sani has insisted that direct primary elections are the most credible and transparent processes of determining candidates.

He warned the All Progressives Congress (APC) not to allow money bags determine who gets what in the party.

The Senator representing Kaduna central district in the National Assembly, spoke in reaction to details of the resolutions of the National Executive Committee (NEC) on the mode of the Party’s Primary Election released on Friday.

It read: “Primary Elections into all elective offices shall be by the Direct and Indirect Election or by Consensus. The use of the Direct and Indirect Primaries shall however depend on the peculiarity and need of a given State.

“The adopted mode shall now be applied to all categories of the Party’s Primary Elections i.e. State Assembly, Senate, House of Representatives and for the Governorship Elections.

“The request for the selection of mode of election must be signed by majority of the Executive Committee in attendance at the meeting where such resolution is reached.

“NEC resolved to adopt the Direct Primary option for the Presidential Primary.”

Restating his opposition to indirect primaries, Sani said it would promote corruption.

The lawmaker said only direct primaries would minimise the influence of money.

He tweeted: “Indirect Primaries; A maternity room for corruption. I stand by Direct Primaries!!!”

Meanwhile, Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has re-echoed his determination to stop Sani from returning to the Senate next year.
