The Chairman of the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, CECPC, Mai Mala Buni, has announced that the National Convention of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, will hold on February 26, 2022.
Mr Buni made the disclosure at the ongoing APC Progressive Women Conference in Abuja.
The Yobe Governor urged the women to come out massively and contest in the forthcoming “national convention holding on 26th of February 2022.”
Recall that APC governors under the platform of Progressives Governors Forum had given assurance that the party’s National Convention will hold in February.
Governor Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi and Chairman of the Forum gave the assurance while speaking with journalists at the end of a closed-door meeting on Sunday night in Abuja.
Mr Bagudu said the February date as approved by President Muhammadu Buhari was sacrosanct and still feasible for the conduct of the event.
“We are one group of stakeholders in the party and our party respects institutions. The appropriate organ of the party that will announce a date for the national convention is the CECPC,” he had said.
