State chairmen of the All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday demanded immediate conduct of the party’s congresses to pave way for the national convention to usher in a new National Working Committee (NWC) of the party.
The party chairmen, under the auspices of the Forum of State Chairmen of the All Progressives Congress, told journalists in Abuja that it was time for the party to hold the national convention, billed for June, after the conclusion of the membership revalidation and registration.
However, contrary to expectations that the membership drive would’ve been concluded by Wednesday as originally planned, the National Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee of the party yesterday extended it again, by three weeks.
The Chairman of the forum APC Chairman of Borno State, Hon. Ali Dalori said at a press conference that the membership drive had increased the base of the party.
Dalori said: “Thus, after the conduct and conclusion of membership registration/revalidation exercise, we urgently call for the immediate conduct of congresses and convening of the national convention; and to allow for the completion of all other tasks assigned to the committee by NEC within the time frame.”
