- There is probably that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) might not have its convention soon
- This is as a result of multiple cases arising from the party’s state congresses contributed in no small measure to the uncertainty
- Meanwhile states where parallel congresses were held said they would not withdraw court cases they filed to challenge the congresses
In what will continue to interest election observers, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has yet to decide on the date for its national convention.
According to reports, among the issues delaying the convention was the fact that the Anambra and Zamfara state chapters of the party had yet to conduct membership registration/revalidation as well as congresses.
The news outlet claims that multiple cases arising from the party’s state congresses contributed in no small measure to the uncertainty over the convention date, Punch Newspaper reports.
Party members in no fewer than 13 states, where parallel congresses were held, on Tuesday, said they would not withdraw court cases they filed to challenge the congresses.
