The Governor advised the members to abide by the guidelines for the conduct of the primaries and also ensure that all avenues for consensus are exhausted for the emergence of ward officials. Where such is not reached, elections should be conducted in a peaceful atmosphere and without any rancour. 

Lalong urged those saddled with the task of conducting the elections to ensure that only registered members are allowed to participate in the process. 

Acting Caretaker Chairman of the APC in Plateau State said the stakeholders meeting is meant to prepare the members for the task ahead which is very crucial. According to him, the party is working to ensure that all arrangements are done on time to provide for a smooth exercise. 

He said lessons have been learnt from the recently conducted Local Government primaries as aggrieved persons are being heared by the reconciliation committee.
