The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has again adjusted its schedule of activities for the presidential, governorship, National Assembly, and state House of Assembly primary elections.
The adjustment was contained in a statement issued by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Barr. Felix Morka on Wednesday.
Morka gave the adjustment by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the APC as followed:
Governorship and House of Representatives – Thursday, 26th of May, 2022
Senate and House of Assembly – Friday, 27th of May, 2022
Governorship and House of Representatives – Friday, 27th of May, 2022
Senate and House of Assembly – Saturday, 28th of May, 2022
SPECIAL CONVENTION FOR PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARIES: Sunday 29th – Monday, 30th of May, 2022.
The new development is coming barely a day after the same APC spokesman denied an adjustment in its timetable for the primary elections.
Morka said in a statement on Monday: “Our attention has been drawn to a story of purported adjustment to the All Progressives Congress (APC) Timetable/ Schedule of Activities for the 2023 General Elections which is making the rounds on social media.” He continued; “The story should be disregarded as fake news.”
Base on the new adjustment of the APC, the party has collide its activities for the Primaries.
Based on the schedule released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the 2023 general elections, all political parties are to have held their primaries by June 3.
