The eagerly anticipated All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary in Lagos state has been postponed to Tuesday, October 2.
This was made known in a statement Monday by Yekini Nabena, acting national publicity secretary of the APC,
The statement read: “The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has rescheduled governorship primaries in the Lagos, Enugu and Adamawa states.
“The mode of primaries for Enugu and Adamawa states has also been changed from INDIRECT to DIRECT Primaries.
“New dates: Lagos Governorship Primaries – Tuesday, October 2, 2018.
“Enugu and Adamawa Direct governorship Primaries – Thursday, October 4, 2018.”
This is the third time the Lagos APC primary will be rescheduled, having being already moved from Tuesday to Sunday, and later to Monday.
In a stunning development in the state chapter of the APC, Akinwunmi Ambode, the governor, is being challenged by Jide Sanwo-Olu, the preferred choice of Bola Tinubu, former governor of the state and a national leader of the APC.
Adams Oshiomhole, national chairman of the party, is expected to visit Lagos on Monday in a bid to resolve the raging crisis, which was aggravated Sunday after Ambode’s extraordinary press conference making damning allegations against Sanwo-Olu.
