Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State is currently in a meeting with the State Executive Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The meeting, holding behind closed doors, is to deliberate on the modality to be used for the forthcoming party primaries in the state.

Akeredolu; his Deputy, Agboola Ajayi and the Secretary to the State Government, Ifedayo Abegunde, led members of the State Executive Council to the meeting.

Ade Adetimehin, Chairman of APC in Ondo State, is also present at the meeting and leading the party's state executive council.

The meeting is holding at the APC secretariat, Oyemekun road in Akure, the Ondo State capital.

Before entering the closed-door meeting, Akeredolu noted that the meeting was to deliberate on the mode of election to use for the party's primaries.

"We are here for serious business to discuss the issue concerning the mode of our primaries. So, it is very simple and I urge us to see it as a serious business," he said.

Journalists were asked to excuse them and were told that they would be called back later after the meeting.

The mode to be used for the party's primaries in Ondo State has caused crisis in the party.

Ajayi Boroffice, the senator representing Ondo North Senatorial district of the state, had called for direct primaries.

However, sources attending the meeting told SaharaReporters that Akeredolu was already gunning for indirect primaries for the party in the state, even if many party big-wigs are against the Governor's rumoured stand.
