The Adamawa state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has postponed its ward congress by 24 hours.
This follows protests by stakeholders including former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Nuhu Ribadu and ex-Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal.
Chairman of the congress committee, Musa Mahmud, confirmed the postponement after a meeting with some party chieftains.
They protested that many candidates were yet to obtain the nomination forms to contest the election.
A serving Senator, Abdulaziz Nyako; Abubakar MoAllayidi and Marcus Gundiri, also supported the shifting of congress.
Mahmud said the congress had been postponed to 1pm on Sunday.
The local government congress will hold next week and states in two weeks time but no date has been fixed for the convention yet.
