Breaking: APC Postpones Presidential Primary


Following the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to give political parties a week extension to conduct their primaries and to submit lists of political candidates, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has postponed its presidential primary initially scheduled to hold on Sunday May 29 and Monday May 30th.



The electoral body had given the extension to give political parties time to compile the list and personal particulars of their nominated candidates before uploading the same to the INEC Candidates Nomination Portal from 10th – 17th June, 2022.


But, the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Felix Morka, disclosed this in a statement issued on Saturday, saying the primary will now hold between Monday 6th and Wednesday 8th June.


He said: “Following the Independent National Electoral Commission’s extension of deadline for the submission of list of candidates by political parties, the All Progressives Congress (APC) hereby postpones its Special Convention for Presidential Primary from Sunday, 29th – Monday, 30th of May, 2022 to Monday, 6th – Wednesday, 8th of June, 2022.”
