LG election: Oyo APC announces new dates for primary


Oyo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has announced new dates for its primary election ahead of the forthcoming local government election in the State.

Oyo State Independent Electoral Commission (OYSIEC) fixed April next year for the local government election.

The APC on Wednesday announced a slight adjustment in the schedule of its primary for all chairmanship and councilorship aspirants.

The party in a statement issued on Wednesday said that the primary became necessary as a result of multiple expressions of interest.

Publicity Secretary of the party, Olawale Sadare, in a statement made available  said that the primary earlier scheduled for this Thursday will now be held on Friday (August 25) and Monday (August 28).

“The schedule of the party primary will now be split into two and we have picked this Friday to conduct the exercise in all the Wards and LGAs in both Oyo Central and Oyo North Senatorial districts, while the turn of the 99 Wards and nine local government councils in Oyo South will be Monday next week.

“Reports submitted by the screening committees established that we have competent aspirants in all the 351 Wards and 33 LGAs; this indicates that APC remains the most popular party in the State,” he said.
