APC postpones congress convention indefinitely

All Progressives Congress (APC) Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) has written to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to withdraw the initial notification of the timeline and schedule of activities it issued for its ward, state, and national congresses.

The APC Caretaker Committee did not however, specify the new date the exercise would commence even as it expressed anger over the leakage of the correspondence with the electoral commission over the crucial exercises.

The ruling party, in its initial released timetable, had fixed sale of nomination forms for Ward Congress between July 1 and 7, inauguration of Ward/LGA Congress Screening/Screening Appeal Committees for July 10, 2021, Ward Congress for July 24, Local Government Congress for August 14, 2021 and the State Congress for September 18, 2021.APC Letter

The correspondence from the party to the electoral commission dated July 6, 2021, and jointly signed by the chairman of CECPC, Governor Mai Mala Buni and Secretary, Senator John James Akpanudoehede, had specifically requested for the withdrawal and rescheduling of the congresses timetable without notifying it of a new date.
