The All Progressives Congress (APC) has shifted the time of its 2018 National Convention in Abuja on Saturday to 6pm.
In a statement signed by the Chairman, APC National Convention Planning Committee, Sen. Abiola Ajimobi, said the convention will now start by 6pm as against 12 noon earlier announced at Eagle Square, Abuja.
“This is to afford delegates from states that are just concluding their primaries, time to participate in the convention”, he said.
The statement added that delegates from outside Abuja are to get accredited at the National Stadium while delegates within Abuja will be accredited at the old parade ground, Area 10, Abuja.
While regretting any inconveniences caused by the change, Ajimobi tasked delegates to watch out for traffic diversion .
He said that all delegates will be accredited by their various states while areas of traffic diversion will be announced.
The Convention, according to the statement, is to elect the Presidential candidate of the Party only.
So far, it is only President Muhammadu Buhari that has filed in as an aspirant for the convention where over 7,000 delegates are being expected.
