The All Progressive Congress (APC) has released the timetable for its primary polls ahead of the by-elections into vacant positions in the national and state houses of assembly.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has since fixed February 3 for the conduct of the by-elections across the country.

Some lawmakers in the national assembly and state houses of assembly have been sacked by the courts or have been appointed while some have died, leaving their seats vacant.

In a notice on Monday, Suleiman Arugungu, APC national organising secretary, said expression of interest and nomination forms for the senate, house of representatives, and state house of assembly would cost N20 million, N10 million, and N2 million, respectively.

Arugungu said the sale of the forms would commence on December 27 and end on January 2, 2024.

He said the deadline for the submission of forms would be on January 3 while the screening of aspirants would be conducted on January 4.

According to the organising secretary, the party’s primary election would be held on January 6, while the review and collation of the list of candidates would be conducted on January 8.

Arugungu said successful candidates elected as flag bearers would commence their campaigns on January 18.

The organising secretary said female aspirants and persons living with disabilities (PWDs) interested in contesting any of the elections are to purchase the expression of interest form but the nomination is free.

He said youths between 25 and 40 years are to purchase the expression of interest forms with a discount of 50 percent on the nomination form.
