THE All Progressives Congress (APC), has said its presidential primary election has been rescheduled to hold on May 29, 2022.

The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Felix Morka, disclosed this while addressing journalists on Wednesday after a meeting of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC).

The ICIR had earlier reported that the primary was scheduled to hold between May 30 and June 1, 2022.

“Our special convention on presidential primaries will now take place between Sunday 29th May to Monday 30th of May 2022,” Morka said.

“The election appeals for governorship and the House of Representatives would take place on Friday, 27th May 2022, while the appeals for the Senate and House of Assembly primaries would take place on Saturday, May 28, 2022.”
