APC sets up committee to plan party convention



-The All Progressives Congress has set up a committee to align party activities with INEC timetable.

APC opens upon congresses, convention and other party activities.

The All Progressives Congress has commenced planning of activities that will culminate in next year’s national convention of the party.

The party wants to reorganize plans for its state congresses and other party activities in line with the 2019 election timetable released by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

The developments were made known to news men in Abuja by APC’s National publicity secretary, Alh. Abdullahi Bolaji.

“Like I said after the NEC meeting, we were unable to hold the convention at the scheduled time and you are all aware that we earlier scheduled to hold, our mini-convention in July, but we were not able to do that for one reason or the other.”

“That means that all the programmes that the party has would have to dovetail into one another. We have the party’s state congresses coming up, we have the mini-convention and the elective convention coming up that must happen by the first half of next year.”
