According to The Punch, The sale of expression of interest and nomination forms for electoral positions in the All Progressives Congress, earlier slated for today (Saturday), has been postponed.
This is because the contractor responsible for printing the forms did not deliver at the agreed time.
After the party’s National Executive Committee meeting on Wednesday, the National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka, announced that the APC would begin selling the nomination and EoI forms on Saturday.
However, at the close of business on Friday, the APC Directorate of Organisation had not received the forms.
It was gathered that the party had not yet perfected its procedures for the sale of the forms and the primary elections slated to run from May 18 to June 1, 2022.
Speaking to The Punch on Friday, a top party source, who asked not to be mentioned, said no new date had been fixed for the sale of forms.
The source stated, “The sale of forms earlier slated for tomorrow (Saturday) has been postponed. No date has been fixed for the commencement of the exercise. The NWC will determine the new date on Monday.
“The postponement became necessary following the inability of the contractor to deliver the forms. As we talk now (Friday evening), the printer has yet to deliver the forms. We hope the exercise will commence next week as the contractor is expected to deliver by the weekend.”
