The All Progressives Congress (APC) has again rescheduled its presidential primary election to September 28, 2018.
This makes it the third time that the APC has postponed its presidential primary election.
As the postponement comes barely 24 hours after Yekini Nabena, APC national publicity secretary announced the rescheduling of the election from September 25 to September 27. Before then, it shifted the primary from September 20 to September 25.
Announcing the postponement on Monday, September 24, Nabena said the recent shift was to avoid a clash with the Osun governorship rerun election fixed for September 27 by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). Nabena said:
“In view of the Osun governorship re-run election which has been scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018, by INEC, the APC has now rescheduled the presidential primary election to Sept. 28.
“This is to avoid a clash in dates with the Osun governorship re-run election and to enable all registered party members in all 36 states of the federation, including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) participate in the exercise”.
