Two factions of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Cross River State have adopted direct primaries to select party candidates for the 2019 general elections in the State, even as they continue in crisis.
Both factions have aspirants for various elective positions in the state including governorship position.
The state Chairman of the Party, Mr Godwin Etim John said on Friday in Calabar during a stakeholders meeting that the party had resolved to adopt the direct primaries as canvassed by the Adams Oshiohmole National Working Committee, NWC.
“The APC in Cross River State as a law-abiding party believes in the supremacy of the rule of law and we have resolved not to be part of any scheme to undermine the order made by a court of competent jurisdiction in the country”
He said the stakeholders also agree to pursue with vigour the ongoing party registration and mandated the chapter Chairmen to leave no stone unturned in the exercise.
It would be recalled that the Mathew Achibe-led executive had last week adopted the direct primaries for the upcoming general elections as directed by the NWC.
