Voting has been concluded at the ongoing primaries of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

All delegates from 35 states and Abuja concluded voting in the early hours of Wednesday.

Delegates from Akwa Ibom State did not vote due to a court order. A court order was served on the accreditation committee on Tuesday.

Despite not having the delegates to pledge, the former Governor of Akwa-Ibom State, Godswill Akpabio, had pledged the delegates to ex-Lagos governor Bola Tinubu, whom he stepped down for.
