Felix Morka

The All Progressive Congress (APC), in reaction to a report on a national daily, denied zoning its presidential ticket to the North-East region.

Briefing newsmen after the national working committee (NWC) meeting on Wednesday, Felix Morka, the ruling party’s spokesperson, said the party has rescheduled its primary elections for various elective positions.

He said the party has shifted its guber primary elections to May 26 from the earlier date of May 20.

“There is no such decision made by the NWC,” Mr Morka explained, announcing that “Our governorship and the House of Representatives primary election will now take place on Thursday, May 26, while the senate and house of assembly primaries will take place on Friday, May 27.”

He said the election appeals for governorship and house of representatives will take place on May 27 while that of senate and house of assembly primaries will hold on Saturday May 28.

Mr Morka said following the party’s approved revised timetable schedule of activities, its special convention and presidential primaries earlier slated for May 30 and June 1 would now hold between May 29 and 30.

He added that the mode of primary election would be contained in the guidelines that would be issued later.
