APC announces new dates for presidential primaries
The leadership of the All Progressives Congress, (APC), has announced a new date for the presidential primaries. The date is now 6th and 7th June 2022.

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

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

ROYAL NEWS reports INEC in a statement on Friday, 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.
