Major routes in the Calabar metropolis are currently witnessing gridlocks as the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and the All Progressive Congress, APC, try to beat INEC’s June 3, party primaries deadline.

INEC had warned political parties to adhere to timelines for the conduct of their primary elections, maintaining that the date remains Friday 3 June 2022.

Murtala Mohammed Highway, Calabar by Venetian Mall down to St. Patrick junction witnesses hold-ups, due to PDP’s governorship primary.

Also, another jam greets the highway, by APC Secretariat where party delegates are being accredited down to Big Qua junction.

From Big Qua junction, vehicles are diverted through King Street by Diamond junction, and the Governor’s office axis down to the millennium park is blocked due to APC delegates and observers’ accreditation at Cross River Geographic Information Agency and State Library.

Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida’s way by the stadium is not left out as men of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) mount roadblocks, leaving drivers to divert and drive in the wrong lanes.

The PDP governorship primary was billed to hold yesterday, Wednesday 25, 2022 but was shifted to Thursday due to what sources cling to as the late arrival of materials.

Similarly, the APC senatorial district primary is scheduled to hold today at three locations after it had resorted to consensus for the governorship candidate.
