APC begins Screening of Presidential Candidates Today


The All Progressives Congress (APC) has scheduled presidential candidate screenings for Monday and Tuesday.
A total of 23 presidential contenders are anticipated to participate in the screening process, according to a list made public on Sunday, May 29th, 2002.

On Monday, 11 applicants will be screened, with the remaining 12 scheduled to participate in the process on Tuesday.
The development comes after the party had already postponed the election.
No date for the screening had been set as of Friday morning, hours before the party had originally planned to hold its presidential primary.

However, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said on Friday that the June 3 deadline for primaries would be postponed due to a technicality.

INEC has now given political parties till June 9 to conclude all matters on primaries for the 2023 general election.

Following the postponement of the deadline for primaries by the electoral commission, the APC had also announced a shift in the date for its primary.

The exercise will now hold from June 6 to 8 in Abuja.
