The interim national leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC, on Wednesday ratified and adopted the results of the party’s ward congresses which took place last Saturday nationwide.
The decision was taken at the 16th meeting of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee which was presided over by the Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni.
The National Secretary of the Caretaker Committee, Senator James Akpanudoedehe, disclosed this to correspondents at the end of the meeting held at the APC headquarters, 40 Blantyre Crescent, Wuse 2, Abuja.
