Abdullahi Ganduje, the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has reassured party members in Ondo State of comprehensive security arrangements during the upcoming April 20 governorship primary election.

Speaking in Abuja on Thursday during the inauguration of a seven-man governorship primary election committee and primary appeals committee, Mr. Ganduje emphasized the party’s commitment to ensuring a secure and transparent electoral process.

The APC Ondo State governorship primary election committee, chaired by Governor Usman Ododo of Kogi and with Senator Ovie Omo-Agege as its secretary, is tasked with conducting a direct primary election across the state’s 18 local government areas to select the party’s gubernatorial candidate for the November 16 election.

Also, a five-member primary election appeals committee, led by former Bauchi State governor Mohammed Abubakar, has been appointed to address any appeals that may arise from the primary election process.

“We don’t expect 100 per cent peace or perfection during the exercise, but we expect you to be vigilant.

“We have contacted relevant security operatives to ensure peace and security during the exercise,” Ganduje said.

The APC national chairman added that the party’s leadership would provide the appeals committee with all the necessary data and documents to carry out its assignments.

Ododo, represented by his deputy, Joel Salifu, at the event, assured that the committee would deliver on its mandate.

“I will collaborate with all committee members to provide the best governorship candidate for Ondo State,” he said.

The Kogi governor promised that the committee would work and abide by the party’s constitution and the electoral guidelines.

Other members of the governorship primary election committee are Lekan Mustapha, Adefunmilayo Tejuoso, Meg Duru, a former Oyo deputy governor, Iyiola Oladokun; and Sani Danjuma.

The five-member Mohammed Abubakar Appeal Committee has Obiocha Israel as secretary, while other members are Jamilu Gwamna, Patrick Obahiagbo, and Onyeka Okafor.
