2023: APGA To Replace Governorship, Assemblies’ Candidates

The All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, is set to replace Governorship candidates and candidates for State House of Assembly for the 2023 general elections.

Naija News reports that the party’s National Organizing Secretary of the party, Ifeanyi Mbaeri, disclosed this in a statement on Monday.

He disclosed that the primaries earlier conducted by the party across the country have been voided.

Mbaeri said the party decided to utilize the window of substitution granted by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to conduct new primaries.

He said fresh primaries will be conducted on August 2 and 3, 2022 for the election of fresh candidates to replace withdrawn State House of Assembly and governorship candidates.

The party has pegged nomination fees for new aspirants intending to contest the fresh primaries at N500,000 for the state House of Assembly and N5 million for the governorship position.

According to Mbaeri, the deadline for submission of INEC FORMS EC9 and EC13 of newly nominated State House of Assembly and governorship candidates to the APGA national secretariat is Saturday, August 6, 2022, by 6 pm.

He added that nomination forms submitted after the deadline will be rejected by the party.
