The All Progressives Congress (APC) has postponed its presidential primary for the 2023 general elections from May 29 to June 6, 2022.
The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka, disclosed this in a terse statement on Friday.
The announcement came few hours after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) extended the deadline for political parties to conduct their primaries.
The statement reads, “Following the Independent National Electoral Commission’s extension of deadline for the submission of list of candidates by political parties, the All Progressives Congress (APC) hereby postpones its Special Convention for Presidential Primary from Sunday, 29th-Monday, 30th of May, 2020, to Monday, 6th-Wednesday, 8th of June, 2022.”
INEC had earlier refused to extend the deadline of June 3.
