Some of the aspirants have registered their protests over the conduct of the exercise and the outcome of the process.
In a letter of protest to the national leadership of the APC, Prof Terhemba Shija rejected the outcome of the election describing the entire process as a sham.
Part of the letter read, “The direct primaries of the APC held on Friday 27, 2022, was to say the least a sham and an aberration of democracy.
“We reject and disassociate ourselves from the results of the exercise.”
Meanwhile, Senator Gemade had also written a protest letter to the party, kicking against the sudden adoption of the Direct Primaries as mode of the election.
He said it was improper, ultra vires and unacceptable while another aspirant, Mr. Terlumun Ikya questioned the failure of the party to strictly observe all the rules governing the application of the Direct Primaries mode of conducting political party primaries.
