The notice just reached the press that the Lagos APC Primaries will now hold on Tuesday, October 2 as against Monday.
This is the second time the date has been shifted.
According to two statements made available on Monday morning by its spokesperson, Yekini Nabena, the ruling party also postponed primaries in at least six other states.
Part of the statement reads:
“The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has rescheduled governorship primaries in the Lagos, Enugu and Adamawa states,”

The Lagos primaries will now be held on October 2, while that of Enugu and Adamawa will be held on October 4.
In an earlier statement Monday morning, the APC announced new dates for its governorship primaries in Ogun, Zamfara, Bauchi and Abia states.
