Why Oyo APC Governorship Primary Election Didn’t Hold Today


The governorship primary election of the Oyo state chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, scheduled to hold today didn’t hold, insideoyo.com reports.

This was due to inability to evacuate crowd that besieged the stadium as requested by the chairman of the committee, Senator Tokunbo Afikuyomi.

Afikuyomi pleaded with the crowd to go out for them to do proper accreditation. He urged the aspirants to appeal to their supporters and well-wishers to go out.
