BY GRACE UWANDU, ABUJA#
The much expected mid term national convention of the All Progressive Congress, APC has been shifted to the first quarter of 2018.
National Publicity Secretary of the party, Malam Bolaji Abdullahi confirmed the development in Abuja. He said meetings of the party’s National Caucus and National Executive will go on next week.
“I can tell you that the convention is not going to take place until the first quarter of next year. There will not be any implosion or explosion because we are not going to invite Boko Haram to the convention.
“Let me emphasise that we have not decided on the date of the convention because we have to hold NEC meeting that will agree on a date and agenda for the convention,” Abdullahi said.
The ruling party had been postponing the conduct of its convention since the March 24, 2016 NEC meeting, where it was resolved that the party’s constitution should be amended.
