He said the issuance of chairmanship and councillorship forms to women aspirants would be free of charge, adding that the exercise would commence between March 1 and March 9, 2018.
“The state Working Committee of the APC wishes to inform all members, especially the aspirants who intend to contest in the forthcoming local government elections that the guidelines and timetable for the party’s primary elections for chairmanship and councillorship candidates have been released,” the statement reads.
