The Governors of the All-Progressive Congress (APC) will be meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari this week to pick a new date for the national convention which was earlier slated for February 26, 2022.

The All-Progressive Congress had earlier initiated the presence of the Independent  National Electoral Commission to monitor its convention at the Eagle Square in Abuja has now failed to sell forms to any aspirant with less than six days to go.

Will the APC hold its convention.

The  APC has been battling to resolve the crisis in a bid to choose its next national working committee members through consensus. A source disclosed that the meeting will be held with the President on Tuesday.

Chairmanship aspirant, Sunny Moniedafe, complained that the party was planning on postponing the convention yet again.

Sunday Moniedafe stated, “Honestly speaking, I am disappointed with the situation. These things could have been handled differently. Everyone knows that we have just six days left so it is nearly impossible, definitely, this convention will not hold on February 26 and this could have been avoided.

There is nothing wrong in telling us early enough that the convention would not hold. Personally, I have been waiting for this convention for the last 20 months. I started (campaigning) in June 2020. I was thinking they would do it in December 2020 but they moved it and I continued. In June 2021, they shifted it again but I continued. It has been traumatic for me and Nigerians. This is unfair.

They should let us know on time whether they will be holding the convention on the 26th or not because people are coming from all over. Tickets have been bought. Let them tell us on time so we can reschedule. I have also reserved hotel rooms. Let us know so we can rebook the rooms.” He added.

However, it must be noted that the party has been shifting its convention since December 2020 due to the inability of the 22 APC governors to accept zoning as an option and the mode of election.
