APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole





All Progressives Congress, APC, has promised to ensure compliance with the electoral guidelines, fairness and justice in the conduct of its primaries.





It also promised to observe all the principles of internal democracy during the primaries which date are yet to be fixed.





National chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, gave the assurance when he spoke to State House correspondents at the end of the APC caucus meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Tuesday night.





He confirmed that the meeting discussed the upcoming party primaries based on the timetable and schedule of activities for the 2019 general elections as released by Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in January.





Oshiohmole, who noted that APC was obliged to comply with the INEC guidelines because the rules were derived from the provisions of the Electoral Act, said:  “The meeting just had a conversation around the forthcoming primaries.





“As you know, based on INEC timetable on primaries, this is the season from the president down to House of Assembly and the exercise must end on October 7 according to INEC guidelines.





“We are obliged to comply with the guidelines because the guidelines are derived from the provisions of the Electoral Act.





“So, we basically discussed how to ensure full compliance with the INEC guidelines and also ensure that that we observe all the principles of internal democracy, participation, ensuring fairness and justice.  I think those are the issues basically.’’
