Uncertainty Rocks APC National Convention As CECPC Notifies INEC on Zonal Congresses


The possibility of the ruling All Progressives Congress conducting her national convention on the earlier date of February 26th is not strong as the Gov. Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee CECPC has alerted the Independent National Committee of its decision to hold zonal congresses in March.

This tends to suggest strongly that the the party’s national convention msy have been postponed indefinitely.

The letter dated 21st February was addressed to the INEC Chairman and jointly signed by Gov. Buni and the National Secretary, Sen. John James Akpanudoedehe.

In the letter, the CECPC said; “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.

“In furtherance to Article 85 of the Electoral Act, 2010 (as amended) and 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 Congresses on Saturday 26th March, 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 notice was silent on any date for the conduct of the National convention.
