The Progressives Governors Forum, PGF, under the aegis of the All Progressives Congress, APC has assured that the party’s National Convention will hold in February.

Chairman of the Forum and Kebbi state Governor Atiku Bagudu gave the pledge while speaking with newsmen at the end of a closed door meeting in Abuja.

Bagudu, who did not give a specific date for the convention, assured that the February date as approved by President Muhammadu Buhari was sacrosanct and feasible. He added that the party’s Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee, CECPC, is in the best position to announce the specific date for the convention.

The Forum’s Chairman also emphasised that the meeting passed a vote of confidence on the Buni-led caretaker committee and two other Governors, Muhammed Bello of Niger and Gboyega Oyetola of Osun states.

Bagudu however noted that the Governors had done an incredible job of running the party successfully and had mobilised people into the party fold, saying that the PGF was very happy with their conduct.

It would be recalled that there has been immense pressure on the APC Buni-led committee to fix a specific date for the  national convention following Buhari’s approval that the event be held in February.
