The All Progressives Congress (APC) spokesperson in Lagos, Joe Igbokwe, has said the governorship primaries was postponed until Monday because people have to go to church on Sunday.
“People have to be in church on Sunday, so we have rescheduled until Monday unfailingly.
“There are other issues around logistics, but everything would be done by Monday,” Igbokwe told Premium Times.
The APC on Saturday postponed the governorship primaries for Lagos and Imo States.
The announcement comes amid stiff contest for the ruling party’s governor ticket between incumbent Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode and Jide Sanwo-Olu.
Sanwo-Olu reportedly received the endorsement of 36 out of the state’s 40 lawmakers on Sunday afternoon, while another governorship aspirant and challenger, Babatunde Hamzat, stepped down for him
