Modified direct primary system’ll favour APC — Femi Pedro

A FORMER deputy governor of Lagos State, Otunba Femi Pedro

has said the adoption of Modified Direct Primaries System,MDPS,

by the All Progressives Congress, APC, as the preferred way of

choosing its candidates in the upcoming 2015 elections, will ensure

the emergence of an acceptable party candidate in the

presidential election.

Pedro, in a statement, yesterday, said the MDPS would ensure that

the candidate with the most widespread grassroots support

emerged as APC’s flag-bearer.

According to him: “Typically, this period in the electoral calendar

usually throws up a mixture of controversy, disenchantment and

irresolvable internal conflicts, but we are extremely prepared this

time around.

“Our party has come this far because all its leaders agreed that

internal democracy must continue to prevail. Cynics initially

thought we won’t merge, but we did. We conducted an aggressive

membership registration drive with minimal hitches across the

“Naysayers predicted doom during our first National Convention, but

we came out successful and unscathed.

“We are on course. We have lost a few members along the way,

but we have also gained valuable and committed members too. We

must continue to forge towards emancipating Nigerians from the

claws of the ruling PDP – a party that has severely ruined our

common heritage.
