The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State has promised not to manipulate the August 27 governorship primary elections in the state.

The assurance was given by Ondo APC Chairman, Chief Isaac Kekemeke on Tuesday, August 23, 2016.

“As far as the forthcoming governorship primary in Ondo State is concerned, there is no basis for manipulation and there will be no imposition of candidate. It is the delegates (voters) that will speak and whoever the delegates pick becomes the candidate of the party,” he said.

“As the chairman of the party in Ondo State, I have no specific role to play in the conduct of the primary. I know that the leadership of our great party at the national level has put in place mechanism to ensure free and fair conduct of the governorship primary on Saturday, Aug. 27,” he added.
