APC To Hold National Convention February 2022

The Chairman of the Progressives Governors’ Forum and Kebbi State Governor, Atiku Bagudu has said that the National Convention of All Progressives Congress (APC) will be held next February.

He said this followed the approval of President Muhammadu Buhari approved on Monday.

He briefed State House correspondents after a meeting with the President at the Presidential Villa in the nation’s capital, Abuja.

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 said 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.

Governor Buni took over the APC leadership in June 2020 following the dissolution of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) led by former Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole.
