The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has rescheduled its governorship primary election in Ekiti state to Saturday, May 12.
A statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Bolaji Abdulahi, said the new date was fixed after consultation between the party’s national NWC, aspirants and stakeholders.
“The All Progressives Congress (APC) has rescheduled the Ekiti governorship primary election for Saturday, May 12, 2018. Time: 8am prompt,” it read.
“This followed consultation between the APC national working Committee (NWC), aspirants and other stakeholders.”
The party had earlier fixed the election for Friday after the last exercise ended on an inconclusive note.
However, the aspirants on Wednesday engaged the NWC for hours, making cases for why the exercise should be rescheduled.
Meanwile, Kayode Fayemi, minister of mines and steel development; Babafemi Ojudu, an aide of President Muhammadu Buhari; and Segun Oni, APC deputy chairman (south), are among those seeking to fly the party’s flag at the governorship election.
