The national leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has postponed the governorship primaries for Lagos and Imo State to Monday October 1, 2018.
This was made known by the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole during the inauguration of governorship primary committees in Abuja.
Oshiomhole attributed logistics for postponing the primary election in the two states.
He said: “We have decided to postpone the governorship primary election in Imo and Lagos states to Monday October 1, even though it is public holiday.”
“There is nothing in the law that says we cannot conduct our party affairs on the day of public holidays.
“We are sure that we will be able to rectify logistic challenges between now and the end of tomorrow”.
He added that the party’s secretariat would get to the committees through its chairmen to hand over documents and all materials including ballot papers and result sheets they would use for the primary election.
Oshiomhole further added that no fewer than 177 governorship aspirants were currently jostling to get the party’s tickets to contest governorship election in 29 states.
