Some of the aspirants argued that when indirect primaries are conducted, the results are most likely to favour the incumbent because most delegates are often those loyal to him.

Despite expressing their displeasure, the chairman of the primary committee, Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, rejected their letter on the ground that “aspirants cannot dictate to the party”.

But one of the aspirants, Mr Olusola Oke has said although he would be part of today’s exercise, he would challenge any irregularity in court.
