APC schedules Imo, Kogi, Bayelsa gov primary election

The All Progressives Congress has released its primary election timetable for the governorship office in Kogi, Bayelsa, and Imo States.

A closer look at the new primary election schedule published on Friday shows that, other than dates and venues, it wasn’t different from the previous ones used for the timetable deployed last year for other states’ primary.

Unlike in the category of the presidential primary where candidates were made to pay N100 million to pick up the nomination and expression of interest forms, the cost for the governorship form is still retained at N50 million.

Argungu, however, noted all candidates vying for the position in their respective state should come to the national headquarters of the APC in Wuse II in Abuja from February 15 to 22 to purchase and pick up their forms.

He said, “The last day for submission of the completed governorship nomination form, expression of interest, and accompanying documents is Wednesday, February 22 and the screening of aspirants will take place from March 24 – 26. The result of the screening will be published on March 28 while the screening appeal holds the following day.

“Members to elect delegates will be financial members of the party of not less than three months to the date of the delegate Congress at the rate of N200 per month. The purchase for the delegate form is N5,000.”

The ruling party also announced that the primary election will be held on Monday, April 10 while the Congress to ratify the results of the Imo and Bayelsa governorship primaries takes place on April 11.

The primary election appeal follows on Wednesday, April 12.
