The All Progressives Congress (APC) will hold congresses to pick delegates who will vote at the state and national level between Saturday, May 7 and Monday, May 9.
This is contained in a schedule of activities released by Suleiman Arugungu, APC national organising secretary.
The ad hoc delegates will be tasked with picking the party’s governorship candidates in the states and presidential standard-bearer.
The party’s presidential contestants are expected to pay N100 million for the expression of interest and nomination forms, while governorship hopefuls will pay N50 million.
The price of forms for persons seeking to contest for seats in state houses of assembly was put at N2 million, while that of the house of representatives is N10 million and the senate’s, N20 million.
The party fixed May 10 as the last day for the submission of completed forms.
The ruling party also said contestants for the state houses of assembly and governorship will be screened on May 12; those aspiring to hold seats in the house of representatives and senate will be screened on May 13, and those seeking to clinch the party’s presidential ticket will be screened on May 14.
The primaries for governorship, state houses of assembly, house of representatives, and senate are May 18, 20, 22 and 24, respectively.
A special convention for the presidential primaries is to take place from May 30 to June 1.
