APC to hold national convention in April
The All Progressives Congress (APC) will hold its National Convention in April.
This was contained in a statement released on Wednesday by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Bolaji Abdullahi, in Abuja.
Abdullahi explained that the decision was taken, following the meeting of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party on Wednesday in Abuja.
He also added that the processes leading to the National Convention, would commence with the Congress to fill some of the vacant positions in the states.
“The vacancies to be filled occurred principally from political appointments, deaths and resignations,” Abdullahi said.
“The congress to fill the vacancies will be followed closely by another congress to nominate delegates into the mid-term non-elective convention of the party”, he added.
Abdullahi further added that after the Congresses, the National Caucus Meeting will be held and then the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the party.
The last APC National Convention was held in Lagos in 2014.
It was there, that former Governor of Edo State, Chief John Odigie Oyegun, was elected National Chairman of the party.
Similarly, former Governor of Ekiti State, Chief Segun Oni, emerged Deputy National Chairman (South) unopposed.
The interim spokesperson of the party at the time, Alhaji Lai Mohammed also returned unopposed as National Publicity Secretary.
