The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State has shifted its governorship primaries scheduled for Saturday till Wednesday next week.
The move, it was understood, was to douse the current tension in the party.
The state secretary of the party, Rotimi Rahman confirmed the postponement Wednesday night.
The primaries would now hold at the Democracy Park.
Reports have it that Army authorities turned down the request of the party to hold the election in the military barracks.
A report by Vanguard has it the delegates expected to elect the party’s standard bearer have gone into hiding to avoid been camped by aspirants going about with cash to buy them over.
3,000 delegates across the 18 council areas of the state would choose a candidate out of 25 aspirants participating in the primaries.
The report added: It was gathered that one of the aspirants had allegedly moved delegates from at least 13 of the 18 councils in the state out of the state capital.
Vanguard, however, gathered that the move was aimed at avoiding “undue influence by loyalists of some of the aspirants shopping for delegates to buy.”
It was further gathered that ahead of the primaries, some aspirants have recruited lobbyists to shop for delegates across the council areas who swear to an oath once they have gotten commitment from any of the delegates.
