Unic Press UK: A new date, which is, 28th September 2018, for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential primary election has been announced by the party’s acting National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena.
The party made a change of date in view of the Osun state gubernatorial rerun election, which the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said would hold on Thursday, the 27th September.
Nabena statement announcing the new date reads: “In view of the Osun State Governorship rerun election which has been scheduled for Thursday, September 27th, 2018, by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the All Progressives Congress (APC) has now rescheduled the presidential primary election to Friday, September 28th, 2018. This is to avoid a clash in dates with the Osun State Governorship rerun election and enable all registered Party members in all thirty-six states of the federation, including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) participate in the exercise.“
President Muhammadu Buhari is the most likely presidential candidate of the APC as he is the only person who purchased the Expression of Interest Form and a Nomination Form.
