It read, “We refer to our letter reference number APC/NHDQ/INEC/19/021/20, dated 10, June 2021, on the above subject and wish to inform the Commission that the party has rescheduled its congresses and national convention to a later date which will be communicated to you.

“This serves as a formal notification pursuant to the provisions of section 85 of the Electoral Act (2010) as amended.

“While hoping to receive your cooperation, please, accept the assurance of my highest esteem,” the APC stated.
