JUST IN: APC Announces New Date For Ekiti Primary


The All Progressives congress (APC) has rescheduled its disrupted Ekiti governorship primary.

The primary will now hold on May 11.

The publicity secretary of the party, Bolaji Abdullahi, made this known while addressing journalists at its headquarters in Abuja on Tuesday.

The election committee on Monday submitted the report of the primary which was stalled due to violence on Saturday.

The party promised to review the full report of the event.

About 33 aspirants including two former governors and three former senators are vying for the ticket of the APC.

Not less than 22 of the aspirants signed a petition to the National Chairman of the party, John Odigie-Oyegun, as well as leaders of the party, stating fresh conditions for a repeat of the primary.

The petition addressed to the NWC, was also copied to President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and a national leader of the party, Bola Tinubu.

The petitioners alleged that some members of the NWC who were part of the organising committee of the primary, were glaringly biased and contributed to the violence that disrupted the primary.
