In a statement issued on Saturday, APC spokesman Felix Morka announced that the party’s primary election will now take place from June 6 to 8.

“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, 2022 to Monday, 6th – Wednesday, 8th of June, 2022,” the APC spokesman said.

On Friday, the INEC announced the extension of the deadline for party primaries by sex days following a request by the Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC).

Political parties are now expected to conclude their primaries by June 9, and not June 3 as earlier scheduled by INEC.

Meanwhile, the ruling APC had a few days ago conducted its governorship primaries across states in the country, ahead of the 2023 general elections.
