A group of aggrieved aspirants on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Taraba State on Sunday, decried that the primary election committee for Taraba state is nowhere to be found and so, no primaries have been conducted in the state.
Barr. Shitu Muhammed Chairman of the group on behalf of the other aspirants who disclosed this in a press conference at the party Secretariat in Jalingo said, the committee set up to conduct the exercise in Taraba was nowhere to be found.
The aspirants while advising those parading as candidates to desist, called on the national working committee of the party to urgently address the matter to avoid what may affect the party in the general election.
“The APC in Taraba State is yet to conduct her primaries for all the positions.
“The election committee for Taraba is nowhere to be found and we don’t know what is happening. This situation is capable of affecting the party in the 2023 general elections and we want the national working committee to act fast on the matter.
“Those parading as candidates are instead deceiving themselves, they are still aspirants because the party has not conducted any primaries in the state,” the aspirants decried.
Our correspondent reports that the Taraba state chapter of the party has since announced candidates for governorship and houses of representative positions through what is known as, direct primaries
