The state governors - Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara; Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo; Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna and Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun, have accused the national leadership of the party of imposition of candidates.
Premium Times reports that some of the state governors have also kicked against the mode of primaries adopted for their various states by the party headquarters.
Governors El-Rufai and Akeredolu accused him of granting automatic senatorial tickets to a ‘disloyal’ senator from each of their states.
