Alhaji Abdurahman Kawu Sumaila, former Special Adviser on National Assembly Matters to President Muhammadu Buhari, has warned his ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to take a cue from what happened in the Anambra election and desist from imposing candidates on the political party.
Sumaila, who was also a Deputy Minority Leader in the House of Representatives, said the era of imposing candidates on anybody is over.
The APC fellow member who contested for the Kano Due south Senatorial District place and lost to Kabiru Gaya in the 2019 full general elections, said this on his verified Facebook account.
He added that whether direct or indirect elections, what matters the most is unloose and fair elections.
“I’m not rattling concerned in relation to Direct primaries or indirect modes of selecting our candidates, But allow’s be honest and ready to do justice to ourselves (APC).
“The era of imposition of candidates is gone. Anambra is the best lesson for us.”
APC’s Andy Uba lost the Anambra election after polling 43,285 votes to come up third behind Peoples Democratic Political party (PDP) candidate, Valentine Ozigbo, and All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) candidate, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, the winner.
