APC adjusts date of presidential primaries to Friday

Published

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has again rescheduled its presidential primary, the third time in less than one week.

The postponement is the second in 24 hours.

The APC had earlier fixed September 25 for the exercise.

Earlier on Sunday, the party had announced that the presidential primary would hold on September 27.

However, on Monday, the National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, announced a new date.

He explained that the new development was due to the re-run Osun governorship election slated for Thursday.

Nabena said: “In view of the Osun State Governorship rerun election, which has been scheduled for Thursday, September 27th, 2018, by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the All Progressives Congress (APC) has now rescheduled the presidential primary election to Friday, September 28th, 2018.

“This is to avoid a clash in dates with the Osun State Governorship rerun election and enable all registered Party members in all thirty-six states of the federation, including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) participate in the exercise.”
