Deji Adeyanju, an Abuja-based rights activist, has suggested why the All Progressives Congress, APC, is yet to conduct the screening of its presidential candidates 48 hours to the party’s primaries.
Adeyanju said APC is waiting for the outcome of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP primaries.
He alleged that the APC is afraid that the PDP may pick a Northerner as its presidential candidate; hence the delay.
In a post on Facebook, Adeyanju wrote: “48hrs to APC primaries, no screening of candidates or any single direction because they are so afraid PDP may pick a Northern candidate.
“That’s why they are waiting and going round and round. They are just waiting for the outcome of PDP primaries then in hours they will act.”
APC convention for the presidential primary will be held as scheduled from Sunday, 29th to Monday, 30th of May, 2022.
The PDP presidential primary will be held at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja on May 28 and 29.
