He said the party would work round the clock to ensure hitch-free exercise, “upon the above, the party has scheduled the conduct of fresh primary elections to elect its candidates.”

”In compliance and in tandem with the provision of the Electoral Act 2022 (as amended), the indirect mode of primary elections, shall be adopted for the conduct of both primary election reruns.”

The reruns which according to him, have been scheduled for the 9th of this month, are to simultaneously take place in Bali, the headquarters of the central geopolitical zone of the state, in the Jalingo metropolis.
