APC lists Conditions before states could adopt Consensus Candidature


The All Progressives Congress APC has outlined conditions to be met by its state chapters before adopting consensus as an option in its forthcoming congresses and primary elections.

The party in a statement by its acting National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena said though consensus remained a constitutional option, it can only be a last resort where only one person has purchased the nomination and expression of interest forms.

He also clarified that 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.
