Speaking on the extension of Political Parties Primary Elections by one week, Bamidele said it is not a decision taken by the ruling party but the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as a result of pressure mounted on them by IPAC to extend the deadline for the conduct of the political parties primary elections by one months .
According to him, “the decision to extend the deadline was not taken by the All Progressives Congress (APC), but by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), as a result of the pressure mounted on them by Inter Party Advisory Council (IPAC) to extend the deadline for the conduct of the elections and it will make the political parties to be more organized”
