Saraki cautions National Assembly against compulsory direct primaries

Former Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has sent a passionate appeal to members of the National Assembly to save the country the trouble that will result from the proposal to make direct primaries compulsory.

Saraki, in a statement yesterday by Head of his Media Office, Yusuph Olaniyonu, noted that the decision to include a provision in the proposed Electoral Act, which makes direct primaries compulsory for parties would only create new problem while trying to solve another.
