“Two hundred and forty delegates from Akure North and Akure South Local Governments are expected to vote at the Primaries.
“All arrangements have been put in place to ensure a hitch free, transparent, credible, free and fair primaries. We urge all delegates to conduct themselves in an orderly manner, vote and leave the venue of the Primaries.
“For the five Aspirants in the contest, it must be understood that, this is a family affair. There shall be no victor nor vanquished in this race.
“Everybody shall be a winner, bearing in mind that, the earlier occupier of the office, was a PDP man. No sacrifice is too much to ensure that the PDP retains the seat at the Green Chamber.”
