The All Progressives Congress (APC) has stated that its National Convention will hold not later than April 2017.
This was one of the outcomes of the National Working Committee (NWC) meeting chaired by the APC National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun at the Party’s National Secretariat in Abuja.
According to a statement signed by the party’s national publicity secretary, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, the processes leading to the national convention will commence with the congresses to fill vacancies in the state party structures across the country.
The statement further said: “The vacancies to be filled occurred principally from political appointments, deaths and resignations. The congress to fill the vacancies would be followed closely by another congress to nominate delegates into the mid-term non-elective convention of the party.
“The congresses will be followed by the National Caucus meeting, and finalised with the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the party, which will consider and set the dates for the National Convention, which is expected to hold not later than April of 2017.
This, the party said, is in accordance with its constitution which states that the party’s convention must be held once in two years.
