The party made this assurance at the end of emergency meeting of APC FCT party Exco on Monday at the party Secretariat.
While speaking with the newsmen shortly after the meeting, Engr. Umar Adaji, State Publicity Secretary said the party is on course to conduct its primaries that would be devoid of rancour among the members and aspirants contesting in the primaries with promise to give every stakeholder a sense of belonging and in accordance with the INEC guidelines, in spite of the short notice.
