APC, Edo to hold governorship primary today

246

The All Progressives Congress is set to hold its primary election holding in the 192 wards of the state today, June 22nd.

The Edo State APC  governorship election committee headed by the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, which on Sunday released guidelines for the party primary election, insisted that the exercise would hold in all the 192 wards in the state.

But the state government said, in compliance with its COVID-19 law, the APC must apply for a waiver before organising a political gathering in any part of the state.

It alleged that the APC had imported thugs into the state with the aim of causing destruction of lives and property.

The state government had on May 28 gazetted regulations aimed at preventing the spread of infectious diseases, including COVID-19.
