One of the Special Assistants to Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State, Biodun Borisade has expressed concern over in forthcoming primary elections of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to produce the party’s National Assembly and State House of Assembly candidates.
Borisade posited that if the process of picking the party’s candidate will be consensus, the consensus should be preceded by deep and thorough consultation and if primary elections will be held, let the elections be free and fair thereby creating acceptance to even the losers.
The statement read “I speak today as a loyal APC party member with just my One-Vote…. That One-Vote will count and speak loudly too at the appropriate moment.
“Through my interact with Prof Bolaji Aluko yesterday, he informed my person and others on a social media public space of his membership of Ekiti-APC Five-Person Reconcilliation Committee set up to resolve the outcome of the recent gubernatorial primary. He didn’t inform of the extent of the committee’s purview at reconciliation though.
“BAO was victorious in that process fair and square. His popularity and acceptability has since soared too.
“My concerns are about the forthcoming primary for the party’s National Assembly Seats and the INVISIBLE reconciliation committee.
“I will say this: If its going to be consensus, let the consensus be preceded by deep and thorough consultation. If primary elections will hold, let the elections be free and fair thereby creating acceptance to even the losers.
“I also at this point pray that the notion and categorisation of a sector of our Party membership as pronounced by Prof Bolaji Aluko as ‘Young Loudmouths… Cyber thugs…’ is limited to just his personal opinion and not the committee’s position of engagement with the vibrant youth sector of our great Party.”
