Today’s governorship primaries of All Progressives Congress (APC)across the country are likely to exacerbate crisis in the already fractured ruling party.

Already, some states have come up as flash points, where godfathers would be waging epic battles with their liberation-seeking godsons, while in other states, the constellation of political heavyweights and last minute horsetrading is set to throw the politically naïve off balance.

Some of the states, where there are likely to be plenty of fireworks are Lagos, Rivers, Akwa Ibom and Oyo states. No fewer than 177 governorship aspirants are jostling for the party’s governorship tickets in the 36 states of the federation.

The epic battle, that of incumbent governor of Lagos State Akinwunmi Ambode, and challenger, Babatunde Sanwo-Olu was shifted by 24 hours to Monday October 1st, at the behest of the national head office.

The National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, who disclosed the shift in date in Abuja, while inaugurating the panel that will oversee the election in 29 states, explained that the shift was due to logistics reason. Also shifted to Monday, is the primary election in Imo State.

Before the postponement, the Governor’s Advisory Council (GAC) and other major stakeholders of the party were to converge on the party secretariat on Acme Road, Lagos where they were to endorse Sanwo-Olu as their choice candidate. But the meeting was hurriedly dispersed by the crowd of Ambode’s supporters, who thronged the venue.

However, a member of the GAC, Senator Anthony Afuye, told the gathering that there were consultations with relevant stakeholders of the party, which had in attendance Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, and was chaired by the National Leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, where Sanwo-Olu.

While confirming the shift announced earlier by Oshiomhole, Afuye said: “The gubernatorial primary has been shifted to Monday, October 1st, and Dr. Obafemi Hamzat has stepped down, and endorsed Sanwo-Olu. The GAC and other major stakeholders have also endorsed Sanwo-Olu.”

As at yesterday morning, spirited attempts were made to save the incumbent from losing the primary, but in spite of all entreaties, and last minutes intervention by stakeholders, all parties involved in the face-off between the governor and Tinubu held onto their positions.
