Alhaji Ahmadu Ogotoyi, the spokesman of the group, made the appeal at a news conference on Friday in Keffi.

Ogotoyi alleged that there was no primary election in their constituency.

He also alleged that the party just filed the name of one Mr Umar Osu as the APC candidate for the state House of Assembly seat for the constituency.

“We are protesting against what we described as kangaroo primary election carried out by the All Progressives Congress (APC) which will not stand the test of time.

“Name of an aspirant was just written and submitted to the party without primary election conducted,” he alleged.

According to him, Mr Abubakar Kana, the incumbent member is the preferred person that the stakeholders and the people of our constituency want but the party do otherwise.

He threatened that the aggrieved constituents would move or defect to other political parties if the national leadership of the party failed to address their grievance soonest.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Kana (APC-Kokona West), the incumbent member at the state House of Assembly, lost out during the party’s primary election to Osu.

NAN also learnt that Kana has petitioned the national leadership of the party over non-conduct of the primary election in his constituency.

However, the lawmaker said his complaint was yet to be addressed.
