Meanwhile, a faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) loyal to former Governor Rauf Aregbesola has condemned the party’s governorship primary election in Osun State.
In a statement by its spokesman, Abiodun Agboola, the faction alleged widespread irregularities in the exercise conducted by the Osun APC Primary Election Committee led by Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq of Kwara State.
The APC conducted the primary election across the 332 wards in the state using the direct mode which allows party members to choose the candidate of their choice.
Governor Oyetola, who is seeking re-election for a second term, fell out recently with his predecessor and Minister of Interior, Aregbesola who now supports a former Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Moshood Adeoti.
A former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Lasun Yussuff, was also a contender in Saturday’s exercise.
