The All Progressives Congress (APC) will elect its governorship candidates on Friday as they begin the process that will conclude with the emergence of the party’s presidential candidate on June 1.

Delegates will pick the candidates in the 28 states where governorship elections will be held.

It will be five delegates per ward. There are 8,809 wards across the country.
