Description

The Chairman of the Kaduna State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and a former member of the House of Representatives, Mr Bala Bantex on Monday debunked claims that candidates were handpicked in the "successful" national convention of the party on Friday last week. Though he noted that quite a number of the contestants agreed to step down for their opponents, some were picked from a consensus. He, however, maintained that in either case - voting or consensus - "voting was done in each case" insisting that there were no areas in particular where the processes were flawed. "There was a lot of horse-trading which produced some candidates on consensus basis particularly in the position of the national chairman and national secretary. And for other positions where there wasn't an agreement to a consensus elections were conducted and candidates emerged," he said on Sunrise Daily.
