The ruling party, in its guidelines for the conduct of party primaries for the 2019 general elections as approved by the National Executive Committee (NEC), said the presidential candidate would emerge through a direct primary.
In the guidelines for the primaries, APC fixed N45 million as nomination fees for aspirants to the highest office in the country.
The ruling party said the governorship primary will hold on September 25, the senatorial primary is fixed for September 27 and House of Representatives for September 29. The House of Assembly primary has been fixed for October 2.
