Group demands immediate release of APC convention timetable

All Progressives Congress (APC) All Progressives Congress (APC)

A group within the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) under the umbrella of Progressive Mandate Movement (PMM) has called on the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) to immediately release the convention timetable slated for February.

The group in a statement issued yesterday and signed by its National Coordinator, Hon. Abdullahi Mohammed and the Secretary, Comrade Adekunle Fijabi, said it would launch operation #OccupyAPCNationalSecretariat for its leaders to do the right thing.

It also challenged Governor Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker Committee to ensure that the party’s national convention does not fail to hold by 5th of February, 2022.

It stated: “The delay in conducting the overdue APC national convention is already giving the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) some advantages, making it look like nobody is in charge of the governing party.

“We therefore call on Governor Mai Mala Buni-led National Caretaker Committee not to go beyond February 5 to hold our party’s National Convention.”

The group stressed that it was in possession of the instructions given to the caretaker committee by the Presidency and therefore appealed to the CECPC to respect President Muhammadu Buhari by releasing to the public all the necessary information concerning the forthcoming National Convention.

It added: “We also warn that if nothing is made public before January 5, 2022, we shall launch an aggressive operation #OccupyAPCNatonalSecretariat to force our leaders to do the right thing.”
