Governor Atiku noted that the CECPC has stabilised the party by supervising the national membership registration.

National convention date

Moreover, in a report by The Nation, the governors revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari will decide the date for the national convention.

Speaking this, Bagudu said:

“There is a proposal before Mr. President and once he approves it, the National Caretaker Committee will announce the date.”

Forget tenure elongation

Meanwhile, Salihu Lukman, the director-general of the PGF had called on Buni to roll out the timetable for the congresses that would culminate in the party's national convention.

He also described as “needless” the extension of the ongoing membership registration, revalidation and update register exercise.

The PGF boss, in a statement titled: “APC’s litmus tests” in Abuja on Monday, April 5, lamented that some of the challenges in the party which led to the dissolution of the former National Working Committee (NWC) led by Comrade Adams Oshiomole were yet to be addressed by the caretaker committee.
