APC holds extraordinary national convention October 29

The All Progressives Congress, APC, said on Sunday that it would hold an extraordinary national convention on October 29 in Abuja, to approve amendments to the constitution of the party.

The convention, according to the party, would also adopt its manifesto for the 2015 general elections.

A statement issued in Lagos, signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, said that the party’s proposed amendments, when approved, would align its constitution better with the Electoral Act.

“It will also allow the APC to function more efficiently,” the party said.

It also said the convention would adopt the six-point manifesto that had been extracted from the one submitted to INEC earlier, for the purpose of the 2015 general elections.

“The manifesto to be adopted at the extraordinary convention of our party is specifically for the 2015 general elections.

“Because of shifting priorities, we do not believe that a party manifesto should be one for all time but a document that will adjust to the changing needs of the people.

“In this regard, we have conducted a survey to find out what Nigerians urgently needed at the moment to raise their standard of living and ensure their security and welfare,

“The six broad priority areas for the APC, ahead of the 2015 general elections are: National Security, Good Governance, Human Capital Development, Economic Development, Land and Natural Resources, as well as Foreign Policy.

“The issue of job creation, fight against corruption, infrastructural development, health, qualitative education and regular power supply, among others, are subsumed under the broad priority areas,” the statement said.

The party said once the manifesto had been adopted, it would be made available to all Nigerians, complete with the full details, in many languages.

    Nigerian youths its time to retire these old men forever , we owe that to the future of unborn Nigerians, we also need a vibrant opposition party to balance our democracy . APC is not that party as presently constituted it has dragged the name of Muslims to the mud and given us the appellation of mindless barbarians how any thinking Muslim can ask for respite for a demonic group of cowards called boko haram is beyond me and beyond reason buhari vowed and even shed crocodile tears that he will never contest any election again in camera ! Thank God for the digital age he cannot deny it yet he did and to many APC e-rats Buhari is the epitome of truth and is given a pass by them as if the rest of us have developed collective amnesia ! Stop this madness and let us build a structure that will make us compete favourably with the rest of the world and ensure the future of our beloved country and make it the true hope of the black man ! We cannot afford to fail in this noble task, I shudder to think of the consequences otherwise. now think about what is at stake in this fight please
    When we tell APC supporters that they only exist on social media they call us all kinds of names ! Some even go as far as accusing us of being paid agents of PDP ! We need an opposition party so that we can balance our democracy ! What we do not need however is a bunch of hypocrites pretending to be progressives ! What is progressive about buharam and thiefnubu ? The biggest joke of all is Atiku ! What is progressive about Atiku ? A man who through the instrumentality of the state bent the rules and used his position as vice president to hack up state assets underprice them and sell our commonwealth to himself and his cronies ! Buharam official age 72 real age somewhere around 78 or more ! A half witted semi illiterate is being advocated for by the youth wing of janjawed congregation aka APC ! I weep for the nigerian youth ! A generation of lazy indolent and cowardly unimaginative trolls ! Gowan was president at 28 years old ! Buharam was president at 38 ! During which period his recklessness and lack of vision saw Nigeria financial situation go from bad to dire ! A simpleton who recklessly barted nigerian oil with Brazil with nothing to show for it ! Babangida came in and did his sap, sfem and finally after all the hot air still had to liberalize our economy and take the imf loan ! The genesis of that moronic janjaweed economic suicide was planted by buharam in 1983 ! Culminating to financial chaos in Nigeria ! This is the same man some young people advocate for 30 years later at the twilight of his life a man who might not have the simple cerebral skill to comprehend an excel spreadsheet ! I weep for the cowardice of the nigerian youth !
