APC reviews timetable as Oshiomhole meets senate

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the APC has endorsed the review of the table-table for the conduct of the primary elections.

A statement issued yesterday by the APC National Organising Secretary, Emma Ibediro, showed that the presidential primary election had been rescheduled for September 25.

The governorship primary election earlier fixed for Tuesday, September 25, had now been moved to September 29.

The new APC timetable had also shifted Senate primary elections hitherto fixed for Thursday, September 27 to October 2.

The House of Representatives primary elections earlier scheduled for Saturday, September 29, would now hold on October 3.

The State House of Assembly primary elections expected to hold on Tuesday, October 2, had been rescheduled for October 4.

National Convention (Presidential), where the presidential candidate will be formally ratified, still holds on Saturday, October 6, 2018 as earlier announced.

Meanwhile, the APC National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, yesterday, met with the party’s senators in Abuja.

The meeting was seen as an avenue to reassure the senators of the party’s readiness to reward their loyalty with return tickets.

In another development, Daily Trust gathered yesterday that the screening process for the aspirants might be conducted in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) at different designated locations for security reasons.

Sources said the party leadership was considering the option in view of the need to guarantee the security of all aspirants from the criminal elements that might use the occasions for abduction at insecure locations in the country.
