The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Wednesday approved the extension of processes leading to primaries in all elections in Kwara.
The National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomole, announced this at the inauguration of the Executive Committee of the party in the state at its National Secretariat, Abuja.
The extension of the processes was at the request of Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture and APC leader in the state.
The minister led the APC delegation to the national secretariat.
“Because of the peculiarity of the situation in your state, I agree you need more time to sort out operational issues to be well prepared for electing candidates for elections.
“It is within the power of the National Working Committee (NWC) to grant the request based on the exigencies.
“It is therefore approved in principle. The new date for the collection of forms, screening of aspirants, appeals and primaries will be approved by the NWC and thereafter made available to you,” Oshiomole said.
