The All Progress Congress has announced that its national convention will hold on February 26, 2022.
This was revealed by the Chairman, Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee and Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, on Tuesday.
He was speaking at the Progressives Women Congress held in Abuja.
New members of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) are expected to be elected at the convention to manage its affairs which are currently being managed by the CECPC.
The APC convention is significant for the party and Nigeria as those elected at the convention will largely determine the direction the party will go in the 2023 general election.
The party has been in one form of crisis or the other since it assumed power in 2015, defeating the then incumbent president, Goodluck Jonathan of the PDP.
However, with President Muhammadu Buhari concluding his second term in office, the party now has to choose a different presidential candidate, a factor that is believed to be at the heart of the party’s inability to hold its convention.
