The National Working Committee (NWC) panel in charge of the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary election in Lagos state, has admitted that the exercise may be rescheduled.
The committee had earlier dissociated itself from the ongoing primary.
Addressing a press conference Tuesday evening, the Chairman of the Lagos Governorship Electoral panel, Chief Clement Ebri, explained the confusion that trailed the exercise.
“We want a victory that will be credible, and will be in line with the guidelines and rules. We are now ready to do the ground running.
“In the next few minutes, I will contact the national office to inform them that we are now ready for the primary.”
Displaying the result sheet to be used for the primary, Ebri added: “We were waiting for the Lagos APC chairman to provide some information, but it came barely an hour ago.
“We have the electoral materials here but considering the Lagos situation, traffic and all, we will wait on the national office for action.”
When asked what would happen to votes cast all day, he said: “I contacted the national office and I was asked to realign with the position on ground”, before admitting that “we may have to reschedule the exercise”.
