The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has moved the governorship primary election for Lagos state from Monday (today), 1st October, 2018, to Tuesday, 2nd October, 2018.
This is the second time in three days that the APC redated the primary, having earlier announced on Saturday that the election would hold on Monday, instead of Sunday, 30 September, 2018.
Incumbent governor of the metropolitan state, Akinwunmi Ambode, is seeking the APC ticket to actualise is second-term ambition. But he has to contend with a Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who is being backed by the party’s leadership in the state to succeed the sitting governor.
Lagos is not the only state whose primary election date has been changed. The National Working Committee (NWC) of the APC, which made this known on Monday morning, also announced that Enugu and Adamawa would no longer hold their primaries on Monday.
Their primaries have been rescheduled to hold on Wednesday, October 4, 2018.
The NWC also informed that the mode of primaries for the two aforementioned states has been changed from indirect to direct.
