APC shifts governorship primaries; denies zoning presidency to North-East

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has rescheduled its governorship and House of Representatives primary elections to Thursday, May 26.

Felix Morka, APC’s national spokesperson, announced this on Wednesday in Abuja while briefing journalists at the end of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) meeting.

“Our governorship and the House of Representatives primary election will now take place on Thursday, May 26, while the senate and house of assembly primaries will take place on Friday, May 27.

“The election appeals for governorship and house of representatives will take place on Friday, May 27,” he said, adding that appeals for senate and house of assembly primaries will hold on Saturday, May 28.

The APC governorship primaries were earlier scheduled for May 20.

Mr Morka said following the party’s approved revised timetable schedule of activities, its special convention and presidential primaries earlier slated for May 30 and June 1 would now hold between May 29 and 30.

He added that the mode of primary election would be contained in the guidelines that would be issued later.

On reports making that the party had zoned its presidential ticket to the North-East, Mr Morka said, “there is no such decision made by the NWC”.
