Hon Barr. Simon Bako Lalong and the State chairman of the APC Hon. Rufus Bature.

According to our source, the meeting reportedly an enlarged stakeholders meeting of the APC, where the conveners allegedly pleaded with the aspirants to be civil in their conduct and to speak to each other and come up with a consensus if possible.

Following this position, our source alleged, the Chairman of the APC Hon. Rufus Bature with members of his working committee invited the governorship aspirants for a parley at the party office where he appealed to the aspirants to see the possibility of having a consensus and at least, getting the number reduced.

They further agreed that they will not accept any form of imposition from any quarters, stressing that they will reject outright any concocted lists of delegates that did not emerge following by the stipulated guidelines.

They also agreed to marry the blueprints of all aspirants and reiterated their readiness to work for the success of the party.

However, our sources have said that there are strong rumours of an endorsement of Dr. Nentawe Goshwe Yilwada by the Governor, his wife, brother, father in-law and the accountant general.
