The All Progressives Congress, APC, is not loosing any sleep over strong opposition and realignments. It has also denied insinuations that it postponed the state congresses scheduled for October 2nd because of the need to reach truce with aggrieved party members who are already talking to the new political platform just springing up.
Multiple sources within the party who wished to remain anonymous said that the exercise was postponed to create room for reconciliation in some flash-point states to avoid further crisis and even total cancellation of the poll results.
The party said it shifted the earlier scheduled October 2, 2021 state congresses to October 16, 2021, to honour the country’s 61st independence anniversary.
Secretary of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Sen John James Akpanudoedehe in a statement clarified that: “The need to honour the country’s 61st Independence anniversary, which holds a day before the initial date fixed for the state congresses, informed the new date.
“Governors, ministers, and party members will be involved in the Independence celebrations in their various states.
“The party decided to reschedule the state congresses to allow all our members to participate in the Independence celebration.”
