The National Working Committee
(NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has shifted the date for the Bayelsa governorship primary, amidst a court injunction stopping it from using direct mode.
The party said the primary will now take place on 31 August instead of Aug. 29,
The ruling party said this in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu in Abuja on Wednesday.
The party had on July 9 fixed 29 August for the conduct of Kogi and Bayelsa governorship primaries.
While the party has adopted the direct mode of primary for the selection of its candidate in Bayelsa, it is using indirect primary in Kogi.
According to Issa-Onilu, the party has adopted the direct mode of primary in line with the written request of the Bayelsa State chapter and majority of the stakeholders.
”This is in compliance with the decision of the APC National Executive Committee (NEC), which grants state chapters and majority of party leaders in a state the right to decide on the mode of primary they wish to adopt,” the party’s spokesman said.
However, a court injunction by some members of the party, may have complicated arrangements.
