The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has, again, faulted notions in certain quarters that its national convention scheduled for next month will no longer take place.
Caretaker Secretary, John Akpanudoedehe, in a chat with The Guardian, expressed surprise over misleading information on the conduct of the convention.
He said the recent position of the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker Committee on the conduct of the convention still stands.
“You are all looking for content to sell your papers. We speak what we mean. You are aware of our last communication with the public. We cannot tell you what we will not do,” he said.
THIS came as the Coalition of APC Support Groups reminded the Caretaker Committee to live up to its promise of conducting the convention next month.
Led by Jator Abido, the group argued that the call is aimed at strengthening the party ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Abido, who spoke during consultative visits to Delta, Edo, Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Plateau and Bauchi States, charged a party faithful to diligently assess the personalities of those vying for the position of national chairman.
He expressed optimism that Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, who is vying for the chairmanship seat, will emerge victorious during the convention.
Also, a support group of the party, National Progressive Hub, appealed to the Caretaker Committee not to yield to calls for postponement of the convention.
