Our Candidates’ List For INEC Is Ready – APC

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday said the list of its candidates for the governorship, National Assembly, and House of Assembly have been processed by the National Working Committee (NWC) according to the INEC guidelines.

The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Malam Lanre Issa-Onilu, disclosed this in a statement issued to clarify the conflicting interpretations that greeted the recent verdict of the Supreme Court on the contentions among party members in Rivers State chapter.

Issa-Onilu said the Supreme Court’s verdict has nothing to do with the primaries conducted for the governorship and legislative positions in the state.

He, therefore, said the candidature of Arch. Tonye Cole along with his running mate, Hon. Victor Giadom remained inviolate.

The statement tiled ‘Re: Supreme Court Ruling on Rivers APC’ read, “In view of conflicting interpretations that have greeted the recent verdict of the Supreme Court on the contentions among our members in Rivers State chapter of the APC, it has become necessary to clarify that the Supreme Court’s verdict has nothing to do with the primaries conducted for the governorship and legislative positions in the state.

“Therefore, the candidature of Arch. Tonye Cole along with his running mate, Hon. Victor Giadom remains inviolate. The list of our candidates for the governorship, National Assembly, and House of Assembly have been processed by the National Working Committee (NWC) according to the INEC guidelines.

“Our party appreciates the support of the good people of Rivers State and their commitment towards the victory of our governorship candidate, Arch. Tonye Cole and other APC candidates at all levels in the 2019 elections.

“A progressive leadership under the APC beckons and the people of Rivers State are poised to effect a change to move the beleaguered state to a path of progress and development.”

Apparently to perfect the necessary forms to be submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) today, the governors of Kaduna and Adamawa States Nasir El-Rufai and Jibrilla Bindow were sighted at the party’s national secretariat on Wednesday’s night.
