The suspense and anxiety surrounding the outcome of the National Assembly primaries of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State appear to be over: the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party on Friday, finally approved candidates who will contest the National Assembly election on its platform.


The intra-party exercise of the party had been marred by intrigues, horse trading as well as other factors which created tension within the party in the state.

On the list of approved House of Representatives candidates are former security aide to Transportation Minister while he was governor of Rivers State, Rotimi Amaechi, Ade Adeogun (Akoko South West/South East);
