Nasiru Darazo, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Bauchi State, has stated that the decision of the party’s NEC to embrace indirect primaries at the state level indicates lack of internal democracy in the APC.
Mr Darazo stated that such resolution would make the APC lose support from Northern states the party controls.
The party chieftain, who spoke with Daily Post in Bauchi on Friday, said that it was as if the APC decision is targeted at the founding fathers of the party.
Mr Darazo added that President Muhammadu Buhari might survive the political challenge in his presidential bid, but most APC governors in the North would lose to the opposition come 2019.
According to him, “The governors know their political sins and want to escape disgrace.
“If the party had decided on direct primary election most of them will lose their seats from primary levels in the reflection of the failed congresses they conducted”.
