Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Balarabe Alka­s­sim

The All pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) has ad­vised its of­fi­cials against im­po­si­tion of can­di­dates in the forth­com­ing con­gresses.

In­terim na­tional sec­re­tary of the party, Ti­j­jani Musa Tum­sah, gave the coun­sel while ad­dress­ing news­men af­ter a round­table meet­ing with mem­bers of the congress com­mit­tees at the party’s sec­re­tariat in Abuja Wed­nes­day.

He said the party has di­rected mem­bers of the com­mit­tees to be just to all con­tes­tants for the party’s lead­er­ship po­si­tions.

On the is­sue of con­sen­sus can­di­dates, he said can only come about af­ter voting where the other can­di­dates will set­tle for one of them.

“Any­where a con­sen­sus can­di­date emerges, there should be voting be­fore his emer­gence,” he said.

Also speak­ing, the In­terim na­tional or­gan­is­ing sec­re­tary of the party, Sen. Osita Izu­naso, said the party is pre­pared to con­duct a free and cred­i­ble congress that will up­hold the pro­gres­sive ideals of the party.

“Our guide­lines clearly spelt out how the con­gresses should be con­ducted at all lev­els. And the party will not al­low the slight­est breach of those guide­lines,” he said.
