The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), has fixed a date for its much delayed national convention Blueprint reports.
There have been growing concerns among stakeholders of the party over the delay in organising the National convention.
While some stakeholders insisted that the exercise take place in February, others believed that the crisis rocking the party in some states be resolved before the national convention.
But confirming the date to Blueprint Friday in Abuja, a top party chieftain, who pleaded anonymity said the Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) under Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe state has agreed to hold the exercise between 25th to 26th of February.
“I can tell you now that our national convention will hold by February 25th or 26th here in Abuja, which has been confirmed by the National Caretaker Committee.
“The Buni-led leadership is not against those that we’re calling for the convention in February but the leadership wanted a situation where the house will not be too divided against itself during the national convention. If some of the life-threatening crises rocking the party are not amicably resolved it will further polarise the party even after the convention and we have to bear in mind that after this exercise (convention) we will be faced with the general elections,” the source said.
