2019: I’m being targeted by APC – Buhari’s minister, Shittu cries out

2019: I’m being targeted by APC – Buhari’s minister, Shittu cries out

The Minister of Communication, Adebayo Shittu, has stated that he was the target of the party following the approval of indirect governorship primaries by the National Working Committee, NWC, of the All Progressives Congress, APC, for Oyo State.

Shittu, governorship aspirant for Oyo State, rejected the indirect primary election approved for the state.

He spoke to journalists on Thursday in Abuja at the APC National Secretariat after meeting with the party’s National Working Committee, NWC.

Shittu explained that part of the reasons he rejected the adoption of indirect primaries in the State was because those to serve as delegates, constituted the bulk of those handpicked for the party’s state congresses, which are being contested in court.

According to the Minister, “the decision to adopt the indirect primaries in Oyo State was particularly aimed at preventing me from having a fair opportunity to contest, participate and to win the primary election.”

“The direct primary system will surely allow all aspirants in the party to test their popularity,” he said.

He added that the system gives party members a fair opportunity of voting for candidates of their choice.

The minister, however, advised the APC leadership not to allow the desperate desire of “some political bigwigs” to produce a stooge as a candidate for the 2019 election in the state.
