The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has postponed its convention indefinitely.
The party had initially scheduled the convention to hold on February 26, 2022.
Instead of its national convention, the party informed INEC of its intention to organise zonal congresses on March 26, 2022.
In a letter dated February 21, 2022 and signed by Governor Mai Mala Buni, and Senator John James Akpanudoedehe, chairman, and secretary of its Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, APC informed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of the new development.
The letter reportedly reads: āThis notice supersedes our earlier notice for the National Convention referenced APC/NHDQ/INEC/019/22/14. This is predicated on the evaluation of our party Constitution.
āIn 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.
āKindly arrange for your officials to monitor the exercise accordingly. While hoping to receive your cooperation, please accept the assurances of our highest esteem.ā
The party is however, yet to communicate a new date for the convention.
