‘Sale of forms for aspirants from Feb 14’ — APC releases timetable for national convention


The All Progressives Congress (APC) has released a timetable for its national convention.

In a statement on Wednesday, John Akpanudoedehe, national secretary of the APC caretaker committee, said the party would receive the interim report of its national reconciliation committee on January 31.

Akpanudoedehe also said the party would adopt reports of state congresses on February 2.

“Inauguration of the state executives on February 3. Sales of forms to all aspirants vying for national offices February 14,” the statement reads.

 “Submission of completed forms and accompanying documents (APC National secretariat) – on or before February 19. Publication of sub-committees – February 19.

“Screening of all aspirants vying for National Offices – February 20 to 22. Screening appeals to hear and resolve complaints arising from the screening exercise – February 23.

“Accreditation of all statutory and elected delegates to the national convention – February 24 and 25. National convention to elect national officers to the national executive committee (NEC) – February 26.

 “National convention appeal to hear and resolve complaints arising from the national convention – February 28.”

In another statement, Akpanudoedehe said the party is yet to take a position on zoning of its national offices.

“I am here to debunk the fake news going around on the social media that we have zoned offices. We are yet to meet on the issue of zoning,” he said.

“The news and rumour making the rounds round are fake news. We never discussed the issue during our deliberations. People should disregard the story because it is fake news. It is not true.”
