APC Governors give Buni’s Committee approval to conduct National Convention

Progressive Governors Forum  has given Mai Mala Buni- led Caretaker Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of All Progressive Congress (APC) a nod to conduct the party’s National Convention.

The Governors Forum at a crucial meeting on Sunday reviewed the party’s July 31 ward congress and directed the committee to proceed with other congresses that would culminate in the conduct of the national convention.

This decision was contained in a communique signed by the PGF Chairman Abubakar Bagudu on Tuesday in Abuja.

The forum hailed the progress so far by the caretaker committee in actualising the directive of the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC).

The statement reads in part: “Forum reviewed progress being made by the APC Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee in the effort to rebuild structures of the party at all levels and commends members of the Caretaker Committee led by His Excellency, Mai Mala Buni for the successful conduct of the Ward Congresses across the country.

“Accordingly, Forum reaffirmed its support for the Caretaker Committee to proceed to conduct Local Government, State Congresses, and National Convention, in line with the mandate of the National Executive Committee.”

The Forum commended members for commitment to the process of rebuilding the APC and urged them to give support at all times to the party leadership at all levels.

It expressed delight with outcome of July 28, 2021, Supreme Court judgment on Ondo 2020 Governorship election, inferring that  it recognized the legal status of the APC Caretaker Committee.
