The association also resolved to create a platform for one-on-one interaction with the aspirants with a view to providing each of them the opportunity to present their blueprint for the development of the state ipas well as to provide members of the association with relevant materials that will in turn be transmitted to her teeming readers and the general public with a view to assisting them to make informed decisions in next year’s general elections.
The interaction with the aspirants which will be in phases will start with governorship aspirants, before the Senatorial, House of Representatives and State House of Assembly aspirants, take their respective turns.
The association commended the political parties for the level of openness and level playing field given to the aspirants so far and called on the political parties to sustain the openness until the candidate who is the choice of the people emerges at the party primaries.
