President Muhammadu Buhari has approved February 2022 for the conduct of the national convention of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Chairman of the Progressives Governors’ Forum and Kebbi State
Governor, Atiku Bagudu, announced this on Monday in Abuja.
He briefed State House correspondents after a meeting with the
President at the Presidential Villa in the nation’s capital.
Governor Bagudu was accompanied to the villa by the Chairman of the
APC National Caretaker Committee and Yobe State Governor, Mai
Mala Buni, as well as Governor Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa State.
He told State House correspondents that the meeting was to brief the
President on the decision of the Progressives Governors Forum when the
members met on Sunday night.
According to Bagudu, the governors resolved that the convention should
hold in February 2022 and the same suggestion was proposed to the
President for approval.
He, however, stated that that party’s leadership has yet to decide on a
specific date to conduct its national convention.
The governor said the party would notify the Independent National
Electoral Commission (INEC) while it works out a timetable.
