APC Would Be In Danger If Its ‘Fail To Organise Convention In June
Salihu Mohammed Lukman, a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Director-General of the Progressive Governors’ Forum (PGF), has said failure by the top ranking members of the APC to organise a national convention in June would spell doom for the party. The tenure of Governor Mai Mala Buni-led APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee’s would expire in June when the party is expected to hold a national convention to select new leaders of National Working Committee (NWC) members. There are speculations that the Committee’s timeline would be extended for the second time, while the convention would be shifted, the speculation was denied by the acting caretaker committees of the party in a statement last week. Mr Lukman in a statement, titled, “APC’s Litmus Tests”, which was made available to the press on Monday said “the Caretaker Committee should not abuse President Muhammadu Buhari’s confidence by delaying the convention. “Failure to organise a National Convention in June 2021, will simply mean that the Caretaker Committee is not interested in protecting the electoral viability of the party.
