The party will be using both primary and secondary school playgrounds as venues for the exercises to select the party’s candidate.

Governor Kayode Fayemi has ordered students and teachers in public and private schools to stay at home ahead of the ruling All Progressives Congress governorship primary election.

This is contained in a statement by O.R Ajayi, the director of schools, on behalf of the permanent secretary of the education ministry, science and technology.

Mr Ajayi said in the statement that all public and private (primary and secondary schools) are to observe the work-free day.

He directed all Heads of various Schools to ensure compliance with the directive.

The governorship primary of the APC in Ekiti will hold on Thursday. The party had adopted direct primaries (Option A4) mode to select the candidate to fly its flag in the June 18 governorship election.

The party will be using both primary and secondary school playgrounds as venues for the exercises to select the party’s candidate.

No fewer than eight aspirants are jostling for the APC governorship ticket, including federal lawmakers Opeyemi Bamidele and Femi Bamisile, former works minister Dayo Adeyeye, immediate past secretary to Ekiti government Biodun Oyebanji (considered to be Mr Fayemi’s anointed candidate), former federal legislator Bamidele Faparusi, former governorship aspirant, Kayode Ojo, Demola Popoola and Olusola Afolabi.
