A group which calls itself concerned APC stakeholders on Monday took over the party’s secretariat in Ado the Ekiti state capital.

A member of the group, Kayode Egunjobi who claimed to be the new Chairman of the party in the state blamed the Jide Awe-led executive as being responsible for the disruption of Saturday’s primaries.

Awe, however, denied the allegation and insisted that the new group laying claim to the party leadership cannot gain recognition.

The primary elections which held on Saturday ended inconclusively after some thugs invaded the venue of the election breaking the ballot boxes.

The Nasarawa State Governor Tanko Al-Makura, who chaired the committee which organised the primaries, told journalists on Sunday that he decided to cancel the exercise when he observed that the whole process had turned violent.

He also promised to report the outcome to the higher authorities with the hope for a peaceful repeat.

On the other hand, the Ekiti State Governor Mr Ayodele Fayose also expressed his displeasure over the conduct of the election, while stating alleged plans by some hoodlums to disrupt the Congress of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday.

He, therefore, challenged security agents to do everything necessary to forestall a recurrence of such at his party’s congress.
