Nigeria:APC postpones national convention to March 26

The All Progressives Congress has fixed its National Convention for March 26.

It will also begin activities leading to the convention, including conduct of zonal congresses from February 24.

The convention was earlier billed for February 26.

In a letter to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Monday, the party had set its zonal congresses for March 26.

The letter was signed by the party’s National Secretary Sen. John Akpanudoedehe and Caretaker Chairman, Governor Mai Mala Buni.

“This notice supersedes our earlier notice for National Convention referenced APC/NHDQ/INEC/019/22/14 this is predicated on the evaluation of our Party Constitution,” the letter partly read.

The party’s National Convention had been a subject of debate for weeks as usual pre-convention activities failed to hold.

Delay in conducting its convention may not be unrelated to internal party wrangling and factions in several states.

The APC party leadership has been quiet about the processes leading up to the convention and reasons why such processes have failed to happen.

Dates of purchase and submission of forms by aspirants and their screening have also elapsed without any formal communication by the party.
