Utomi Condemns Killing At Delta APC Primaries, Blames It On Indirect Primaries
APC Gubernatorial aspirant and founding member of the APC, Prof. Pat Utomi has condemned the killing and injury at the Senatorial Primaries in Delta State today. He regretted the needless loss of precious lives and blamed Indirect Primaries for the tension and violence consequent on the perceptions that Indirect Primaries are prone to abuse.
He prayed God to show mercy on the deceased and grant loved ones the fortitude to bear the loss.
Prof Utomi who thanked God that the liberal shooting of teargas and occasional bursts of gunfire at the sham gubernatorial primaries last Sunday, did not result in loss of lives, urged the National working committee of our great Party, APC and the National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, to move quickly to stem further loss of life by calling off the Indirect Primary system in Delta State.
Prof. Utomi called for calm among Party Faithfuls and pledged to work with appropriate Authorities to ensure justice for all and a system that allows the more popular candidates to emerge.
He reminded Party faithfuls that politics is about accommodation and should not be a do or die affair.
