Irukera: cleared to contest APC primary

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has approved, Mr Babatunde Irukera, a Kogi governorship aspirant, to contest the party’s governorship primary.

The party in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Malam Lanre Issa-Onilu, in Abuja on Wednesday, said Irukera successfully met the conditions provided by the Party’s guidelines for the nomination as candidates within the time granted to clarify his claims.

However, the screening committee headed by Sen. Hope Uzodinma, had on Aug. 26, released its report, disqualifying Irukera for not meeting requirements.

Some members of APC on the auspice of Kogi Mandate Group, on Wednesday had expressed concern over the disqualification of a Kogi governorship aspirant, Mr Babatunde Irukera.

The National Coordinator, Kogi Mandate Group, Mr Amos Alfa, said that the group was at the APC National Secretariat to protest against disqualification of Irukera.

According to him, the NWC of the party should do justice to ensure that Irukera feature in the primary.

“Justice should be done and ensure that this party doesn’t lose Kogi to a wrong hand,” Alfa said.
