POLITICAL PARTIES SEEK EXTENSION OF PRIMARIES TIMELINE

Political parties in the country have sought an extension of the timelines for the 2023 general elections from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

They particularly demanded that the deadline for the conduct of party primaries be extended by two months.

The appeal was made on Tuesday by the Chairman of the Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC), Yusuf Yabagi, at a meeting of the electoral umpire and leaders of various political parties at the INEC headquarters in Abuja.

Yabagi, who also serves as the National Chairman of the Action Democratic Party (ADP), said the extension is necessary to help political parties put things in order for the forthcoming general elections.

The INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu who presided over the meeting informed the party leaders that the commission would not review the existing timelines and appealed that primaries be conducted credibly in order to minimise litigations.

Reminding them of the forthcoming governorship elections in Ekiti and Osun, he called on all the parties to comply with the provisions in the Electoral Act.

The meeting was attended by National Chairmen of various parties, including Abdullahi Adamu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Iyorchia Ayu of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
