Ahead of the coming 2023 polls, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has adjusted the schedule of activities for its planned primary elections for presidential, governorship, National Assembly, and state House of Assembly, respectively.
This party’s National Publicity Secretary Barr. Felix Morka communicated this in a statement issued on Wednesday.
Below is the adjustment by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party.
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 news comes just one day after an APC spokeswoman denied that the primary election schedule would be changed.
“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 said in a statement on Monday. “The story should be disregarded as fake news.”
Meanwhile, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has in its schedule asked all political parties to hold held its primaries by June 3, ahead of the 2023 general elections.
