IBILE.TV NEWS (LAGOS) -Party leaders in the Lagos state chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress have said the process for the selection of its governorship flag bearer for next year’s selection will be by direct primaries.

The Gubernatorial Advisory Committee (GAC), which is made up of party elders and leaders from three senatorial districts, stated that there would be no ground on which the decision could be overturned. The exercise is scheduled for September 27th.
