APC National Convention holds Feburary 26 .
Governor Mai Mala Buni, chairman of the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), has announced that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) will hold its National Convention on February 26, 2022.
He made the announcement at the APC Progressive Women Conference, which is currently taking place in Abuja.
The Yobe Governor urged women to turn out in large numbers and run in the upcoming “national convention” on February 26th, 2022.
A new National Working Committee (NWC) will be elected and inaugurated, ending the caretaker committee’s term.
The committee led by Yobe State Governor Mai Mala Buni is expected to form a zoning committee on Wednesday, ahead of the scheduled date.
The zoning committee will be tasked with zoning the party’s national offices ahead of the 2023 general elections, according to a party source.
He believes that if the chairmanship is zoned to the North, it is the clearest indication that the presidential candidate will come from the South.
The convention has sparked controversy within the ruling party, with Salihu Lukman, the director-general of the Progressive Governors Forum, resigning on Monday.
During their meeting in Abuja on Sunday night, some governors elected on the party’s platform demanded his resignation, according to reports.
Lukman had chastised the ruling party for failing to set a date for the national convention, accusing the Buni-led caretaker committee of attempting to prolong his tenure by delaying it.
