The National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress has rescheduled the governorship primary to 30 September, just as it asked state governors to serve as returning officers in the presidential primary scheduled for Friday.
The notice of the shift in the governorship primary was given by the party’s acting National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, in Abuja, on Thursday.
He, however, said the dates for subsequent elections remain unchanged and are as follows:
*2nd October, 2018 – Senate primary elections
*3rd October, 2018 – House of Representatives primary elections
*4th October, 2018 – State House of Assembly primary elections
*6th October, 2018 – National Convention (Presidential).
For the presidential primary on Friday, the National Working Committee (NWC) has appointed respective State Governors to serve as Returning Officers.
“In States where there are no Governors on the Party’s platform, Senators along with the ministers are to serve as Returning Officers for the exercise.
“National and State House of Assembly members are to coordinate their various constituencies during the exercise”, said Nabena..
