No fewer than 27 aspirants will contest All Progressive Congress (APC) governorship primary election in Osun, Chairman of the party in the state, Mr Gboyega Famodun, has said.
The party had earlier fixed July 7, 2018, as the date for its Osun State governorship primary election, while it revealed the schedule of its programmes and activities ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Others included Alhaji Moshood Adeoti, Secretary to Osun Government and Mr Peter Babalola, Chairman, Osun Civil Service Commission.
Famodun announced that Expression of Intention to contest attracted a fee of N500, 000, and urged the aspirants not to see the primary as a do-or-die affair.

“I want to appeal to all the aspirants not to conduct themselves in a way that will embarrass the party or make it to be as if we are at war with each other,” he said.
