Yobe: Democracy On Trial, By Ahmed B. Gulani


For APC to retain its firm grip on Yobe politics, it has to make sure that direct primary elections take place in the state. And all efforts must be made to stop anyone or any force from manipulating the process. There is need for all well meaning Nigerians and institutions to come to our rescue, as people in Yobe State are getting so helpless to the point of increasingly becoming fatalistic.

This week is a decider for Yobe and many other States in Nigeria. It is particularly a week worth watching in Yobe State. Who the All Progressives Congress (APC) fields as candidate for gubernatorial election of 2019 will determine so many things. First, it will determine whether the state can make progress or it will end up being the continuation of business as usual. It will also determine whether APC is going to be the same or fall apart and lose its stronghold.
