- The National Executive Committee (NEC) of APC will meet on April 25, after a national caucus meeting, which holds April 24
- Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, the APC national chairman, said a new date for the convention will be confirmed at the NEC meeting
A report by Daily Post indicates that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), has postponed its convention, which was scheduled to hold April 29.
NAIJ.com gathered that the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party, will meet on Tuesday, April 25. The NEC will take place after a national caucus meeting, which holds Monday, April 24.
The APC national chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, while speaking with journalists at the party’s headquarters in Abuja confirmed the convention has been postponed.
Below is a video where President Muhammadu Buhari was speaking at the first national convention:
Oyegun said: “Well, the party would hold a caucus meeting on April 24, NEC on April 25 and it is NEC that would decide the date for the convention.”
The plans for the convention had remained in the background following the president's long absence from the country.
The date for the national convention, was set after a consultative meeting with APC governors at the National Secretariat of the party last month.
The last APC national convention which was held in Lagos in 2014, produced former Governor of Edo State, Chief John Odigie Oyegun, as the national chairman of the party and former governor of Ekiti state, Chief Segun Oni, as the deputy national chairman (South).
By the constitution of APC, a mid-term convention is only used to adopt and rectify decisions taken during the NEC meeting as well as issues relating to constitutional amendments. It is not meant to elect national officers of the party.
