DIRECT PRIMARIES Is Our Best Option In Lagos State, Says Bola Tinubu.

APC's Flag.

The Lagos State chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC has come out with the resolved to use DIRECT PRIMARIES to elect candidates who will fly the party’s flag in the 2019 election into various positions in the state.

The party has therefore commenced the process of registering new members as she issues membership cards to those who had registered before.

National Leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu while addressing party members at the secretariat of the party in Lagos, said it was gratifying to report that the party has resolved to register additional members, adding that membership register would be opened to facilitate the process of registration which would eventually be used for the direct primaries during the selection of candidates of the party.

He said: 
“We appeal to all our members to update the membership registration and embrace the direct primary that has just been introduced and adopted by our party. We are committed to our party; we are committed to the values of the party; we see direct primary as President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption and internal democracy revolution.”

“We are going to embrace that in which the party is going back to the owners of the party and that is you the people. It is not we the few; it is we the people. We have embraced democracy and you have your decisions to be made but you have to be members of our party in the first place,”

He also dismissed the insinuation that the party is divided in the State, saying there is nothing of such, and that the party is intact.

“We reiterate the fact that APC in Lagos State is intact. There is no division. I’ve heard some people conspiring to present a situation of division in the party in Lagos but let me assure you that it is just the coming together of adversaries which will have no effect on the party,” Tinubu said.

Besides, he said the party at the State level also passed a resolution commending the Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajofor taking decisive actions to save the party and the nation from any embarrassment, saying: “We commend his efforts; we stand with him; and we stand with all members of our party,” just as the party commended all the steps taken so far by APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.
