Although the All Progressives Congress (APC) scheduled governors' meeting was not held on Sunday, January 9, some chieftains of the ruling party have said that they did not get any invitation to the meeting.
Governor Akeredolu said:
“My brother I never had any invite for any PGF meeting. I also read about a meeting in the news. I am therefore not in a position to know the reason for cancellation.”

National convention: Buhari, APC governors to decide date on Sunday, January 9
Meanwhile, there were indications that the APC national convention slated for February 2022 might be held.
Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau state disclosed this to State House correspondents after a meeting with the president in his office on Friday, January 7.
The chairman of the Northern Governors Forum (NGF) said Buhari gave an assurance that nothing would stop the party from conducting the convention in February.
In a previous report by Legit.ng, there were indications that the APC national convention slated for February 2022 is shaky.
This was coming as the APC national reconciliation committee set up by the ruling party to pacify aggrieved members failed to make headway three months after it was inaugurated.
Amid a large number of cases in court, the party fears that its national convention could be declared illegal if the suits were not withdrawn or concluded.
