The APC National Convention has been postponed; Zonal Congresses will be held in March.
Following President Muhammadu Buhari’s approval, the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has agreed to a change in the date of its national convention.
The Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, CECPC, chaired by Yobe State Governor Mai Bala Buni, met Sunday night and decided to postpone the party’s national convention, which was previously scheduled for this Saturday.
The committee decided on an indefinite postponement, which may not have gone over well with other party stakeholders, who are clamoring for the convention to be held on February 26 as originally planned.
There are also rumors that stakeholders agreed to a postponement due to logistical issues with the convention’s planning.
In a letter dated February 21, 2022, the Chairman and Secretary of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Governor Mai Mala Buni, and Senator John James Akpanudoedehe, informed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of the new development.
The ruling party has instead fixed its zonal congresses for March 26.
This notice supersedes our earlier notice for the National Convention referenced APC/NHDQ/INEC/019/22/14. This is predicated on the evaluation of our party constitution. ”
In furtherance to Article 85 of the Electoral Act, 2010 (as amended) and in compliance with Section 12:6 of our Party Constitution, we hereby write to notify the Commission that our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), has scheduled to hold its zonal congress on Saturday, March 26, 2022.
Kindly arrange for your officials to monitor the exercise accordingly. While hoping to receive your cooperation, please accept the assurances of our highest esteem. ”
The party has, however, yet to communicate a new date for the convention.
Sources at the ruling party’s national secretariat had earlier informed Ejes Gist Newspaper that March was being considered for the convention.
