Adebiyi, who said the party’s constitution gives the state executive the responsibility to supervise the exercise,  added that “the Local Government and Ward committees were deployed to the 20 Local Governments and 236 wards of Ogun State to supervise the conduct of the  October 2, 2018 primaries in all the wards, using the Direct Primary Option.

He said members of the party were law abiding and peaceful all through the exercise.
