    The All Progressives Congress (APC) has postponed its presidential primaries to June 6th and 7th.

    This decision comes only a few hours before the original date of the exercise, which was earlier slated for Sunday, May 29.

    The announcement comes after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) accepted appeals by political parties to extend the dates for the conduct of primary elections.

    The APC presidential primary election was earlier scheduled for May 29 to 30.

    Spokesman of the ruling party, Felix Morka, in the statement said: “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.

    INEC has extended the dates for primaries by six days.

    Earlier, political parties had requested for 37 to 60 days extension of the timeline for primaries and the nomination of candidates but the commission refused the plea.
