#2019: APC Reschedules Presidential Primary Election Same Date As Osun Re-run Election

The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Sunday, September 23, announced that its presidential primaries have been rescheduled. In a statement by APC's National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, on Sunday night, the All Progressives Congress (APC) announced that it have rescheduled its presidential primary from September 25 to September 27.
The short statement read: “The presidential direct primary election earlier scheduled for Tuesday, September 25th, 2018 will now hold on Thursday, September 27th, 2018.”
The governing party had last week earlier reviewed its dates for primaries.
From the previously reviewed time table, the primaries were to hold as follows: 
1. September 25 – Presidential Primary Election
2. September 29- Governorship Primary Election
3. October 2 – Senate Primary Elections
4. October 3 – House of Representatives Primary Elections
5. October 4 – State House of Assembly Primary Elections 
6. October 6 – the National Convention for the Presidential primary.
Though the party did not change the dates for other primaries, its new date for the presidential primary is same as that of the Osun governorship re-run.
Meanwhile, whole speaking to PREMIUM Times, Nabena, disclosed that the fact both the presidential primary and Osun re-run election hold same day will not be a problem.

“It won’t be an issue because when you look at the local government affected for the Osun re-run they are just few so it’s not going to be an issue.”
