by Echezona obinna

On Friday morning, the ruling All Progressives Congress revealed its primary election schedule for the governorship positions in three states: Kogi, Bayelsa, and Imo.

The party agreed the plan for publishing following a series of meetings in Abuja with its National Executive Committee and the National Working Committee.

A closer examination of the new primary election calendar released on Friday reveals that, aside from dates and locations, it was not much different from the previous ones utilised for the timetable adopted last year for other states’ primaries.

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.

The newly released schedule signed by the National Organising Secretary, Suleiman Argungu, however, stipulated that female aspirants and interested Persons Living with Disabilities are to procure only the expression of interest form (N10m) while the nomination form would be given to them free.


On the other hand, young politicians within the age bracket of 25 to 40 years, who are interested in taking a shot at the governorship ticket at the primary, are also encouraged to pick up the form at a subsidised rate of N30m.
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 for the screening will be published on March 28 while screening appeal holds the following day.

The ruling party also announced that the primary election holds 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
