APC constitutes 15-member committee for National Convention

Lai Mohammed

The APC national convention will hold on June 13 and 14.

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has raised a 15-member committee ahead of its National Convention rescheduled for June 13 and 14 in Abuja.

Its Interim National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, made the disclosure in Abuja on Tuesday at a news conference after the 10th meeting of the party’s Interim National Committee.

He said “the Interim National Committee of APC, after deliberations, agreed to hold the party’s National Convention in Abuja on June 13 and June14.’’

The APC had earlier announced that it would hold its national convention on May 24, 2014, which it later postponed.

Mr. Mohammed said the postponement was to enable the party to conclude its congresses in some states and resolve all contentious issues.

The committee, he said, would be headed by Governor Aliyu Wamakko of Sokoto State, while Chris Ngige would serve as his deputy.

Some other members of the committee include Sule Buba and Rotimi Fashakin.

Mr. Mohammed, who expressed the party’s concern over the security challenge facing the country, announced APC’s willingness to partner with the Federal Government to tackle the menace in the country.

He advised the Federal Government to adopt a holistic approach in the fight against the insurgency in the North-East.

He emphasised the need for government to shun party differences and extend hand of friendship to APC with a view to forging a common front against terror groups.

The APC spokesperson said “a party that controls 16 states, over 40 senators and 150 members of House of Representatives is too big to be ignored at a critical time like this in the life of our nation.’’

He, however, cautioned against politicisation of the fight against Boko Haram and urged all stakeholders in the Nigeria project to be sincere and patriotic.

He said “APC remains committed to a non-partisan approach to end the Boko Haram scourge.’’

The former Governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, applauded international community’s support to the fight against insurgency in Nigeria, saying “it is a good step in the right direction.’’

The meeting was attended by Muhammadu Buhari, Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo, Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers, ex-governors Ogbonnoya Onu and Danjuma Goje, among others.

  • Ayo Odunsi

    APC IS INDEED AN ETHNO-RELIGIOUS JANJAWEED POLITICAL PARTY !!!

    For APC ………………. the Northern Muslim Hausa-Fulani must be the HEAD while others are sentenced to pick up the crumbs.

    Observe this ………………. “The committee, he said, would be headed by Governor Aliyu Wamakko of Sokoto State, while Chris Ngige would serve as his deputy”.

    We all know the value of a Deputy in the scheme of things in Nigeria …. a Deputy is completely inconsequential in matters of this nature.

      Ayo Chukwudi Odunsi, why not mind your own business. Why not face your own party or role models.

    • TruNja

      Good observation. APC is a Muslim Brotherhood party of Nigeria.

      • Issei

        TruNja. And PDP is anti balaka party of Nigeria.

  • BlackieUmukoro

    Your recent numerical strenght is a product of decampees, a matter which is yet to be decided upon by the courts. So don’t be too quick to claim a victory that may be upturned soon. You can ask Femi gbajamigbila or whatever of the house of Rep who claimed majority leadership of the house too soon, but was made to swallow not even eat his humble pie. Be careful

    • Larry

      Oh boy, are you paid to respond to anything APC? Get a job man. Even if the party sneezes you must respond.
