Painting over colored walls

I live in an apartment. We painted the walls a dark color. We are moving out and the landlord wants us to repaint over the color. They are going to come in before the next tenants and paint againto so that all of the walls are one color.

My question is can I use primer (because its cheaper) to paint over the color (dark red in one room and yellow in the bedroom).

I would suggest using an oil base primer(kilz)which dries pretty fast in an hour or so depending on the tempeture and would suggest a second coat depending on how well it covers the dark colors when it dries.
Good luck!
