By Adeyemi Adeleye
Lagos, May 26, 2022 The All Progressives Congress (APC) House of Assembly primaries in Lagos State has been postponed to Friday, an official has confirmed.

Speaking with Naija247news Mr Yesiru Karamo, APC Acting Publicity Secretary in Lagos state confirmed the shift of the primaries scheduled to hold on Thursday.

Karamo said: “Yes, it has been postponed across the state. By 10:00 a.m. tomorrow (Friday), we will start across all the 40 state constituencies.”

Asked about the reason for the shift, the Lagos APC spokesman said the governorship primaries held today (Thursday) was concluded late.

According to him, since the ad hoc delegates for the house of assembly are a handful, the exercise will not take time to be concluded on Friday.

He appealed to all party members and delegates to bear with the party and be ready to make sacrifices for the sake of the party.

Naija247news recalls that the APC planned to hold its governorship and house of assembly primaries on Thursday but could only conduct the governorship primary election.

Meanwhile, the ruling party has also fixed its House of Representatives primaries for Friday, while senatorial primaries would hold on Saturday.

Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu was on Thursday, declared winner of the governorship primaries by the APC Electoral Committee chaired by Alhaji Adamu Yuguda, a former Borno deputy governor.
