The All Progressives Congress (APC) Committee of Chairmen in Diaspora (Europe) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to intervene and allow the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker Convention Planning Committee to conduct the party's national convention.
The party members in the diaspora said the president should also ensure that the committee conducts the APC's presidential primary.
The group in a statement seen by Legit.ng said the Buni-led committee has followed international best practices and this must be adopted in charting the way forward for the APC ahead of the next general elections.
In its statement signed by Maxwell Okolo and Margrette Mark, its president and secretary, the group said a review of various development within the party shows that some people do not mean well for the APC.

The diaspora group added that it would be best for the committee to conduct both the national convention and presidential primary simultaneously.
"We should be strategic to conserve resources and channel the same into winning elections instead of dissipating them on hosting multiple events."
