A former Commissioner for Information in Imo State, Prof Orikeze Vitalis Ajumbe, has commended the National Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Commitee, CECPC, of the All Progressive Congress, APC for postponing the party’s Congresses, and National Convention.
Before the postponement, the party’s Congresses was scheduled to kick off with Ward Congress on July 24
Speaking to newsmen in Owerri, Ajumbe, a chieftain of the party, said the postponement is in order, because it will provide sufficient time for the party leadership to conclude the collation of the party’s data, anchored on its membership revalidation and registration exercise.
Ajumbe also noted that with the level of insecurity in the country, it is unconducive to hold the party’s Congresses and National Convention.
He stated that what is paramount is to ensure that the APC remains formidable despite it’s several challenges.
He commended the Mai Mala Buni led CECPC for the level of orderliness it restored in the party, and for attracting Governors of Ebonyi, Cross River, Zamfara States namely, Dave Umahi, Ben Ayade, Bello Matawalle, some Senators, members of the House of Representatives, and many others, to the APC.
Ajumbe said “The CECPC led by Governor Mai Mala Buni has done well, and deserves accolades for a job well done in repositioning the APC.
“Patriotic members of the APC must encourage the CECPC to enable them consolidate on the gains of its accomplishments within a short of time”he said.
He said the Congresses and National Convention can take place when it is deemed appropriate and conducive for the party.
“Congresses can take place when it is proper to do so. If APC must retain Power at the centre, and win more States, the party must take guided steps, in order to avoid disharmony among members and stakeholders” he concluded.
