Former Attorney-General of Enugu State, Mr Ifeanyi Nwoga, says direct primaries introduced by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to select candidates for the 2019 general election will enhance Nigeria’s democracy.
Nwoga, a governorship aspirant of APC, told newsmen on Sunday in Enugu that the process which allowed the party members to select their leaders was ingenious.
He said that direct primaries would instil confidence and sense of ownership in members of the party unlike in the past when few individuals were involved in the selection of candidates.
“This is an ingenious concept that APC has come up with in Nigeria’s politics. It gives the electorate the right to participate in the selection of their designated flag bearers,” he said.
