2019: Again, APC Reschedules Presidential Primary
For the umpteenth time, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has rescheduled its presidential primary from September 25 to September 27.
The party made this known in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, on Sunday night.
"The presidential direct primary election earlier scheduled for Tuesday, September 25th, 2018 will now hold on Thursday, September 27th, 2018."
The governing party had last week earlier reviewed its dates for primaries.
From the previously reviewed time table, the primaries were to hold as follows: September 25 – Presidential Primary Election, September 29- Governorship Primary Election, October 2 – Senate Primary Elections, October 3 – House of Representatives Primary Elections, October 4 – State House of Assembly Primary Elections and October 6 – the National Convention for the Presidential primary.
Though the party did not change the dates for other primaries, its new date for the presidential primary is same as that of the Osun governorship re-run.
The Osun governorship election held on September 22 was declared inconclusive.
Nabena, however, said that the fact that both the presidential primary and Osun re-run election hold same day will not be a problem.
President Muhammadu Buhari is the only presidential aspirant to have purchased the APC form at the 45 million Naira price fixed by the party.
