The All Progressives Congress( APC )has actually insisted that the March 26 nationwide convention will proceed as prepared.
The National Youth Leader of the celebration and acting representative, Ismaeel Ahmed made this known while addressing an interview on Friday in Abuja
Ahmed said: “I’m not just a youth leader or internal representative, but I’m also a lawyer and we have actually served a notice to INEC for the 26th of February earlier. We served that notification on the 5th of February which was the required 21 days.
“If you are going to make any adjustment to that date, all you require is a letter, making a change to the date. When we realised that we couldn’t hold it on the 26th of February, you don’t need another 21 days and that letter was since composed about 2 weeks earlier. The minute, the CECPC agreed on the 26th of March, that letter was composed to INEC, INEC has actually accepted that letter. That is long gone is not an issue.”
Ahmed clarified that there was no problem about the convention date nor exists any contention.
“The issue of the date of the convention is not in concern, not in INEC, not definitely with us. That is settled. It is sacrosanct that 26th of March and we have adhered to all the guidelines and we have actually alerted INEC as appropriately anticipated for us to do that. That’s no longer a problem.”
The celebration spokesperson wondered why individuals are making the management scenario in the celebration an issue.
Ahmed described that the Governor of Niger State, Abubakar Bello was showing the complete authority of the caretaker committee, stakeholders, leaders of the celebration, and with the complete approval of Buni.
He noted that while Governor Mai Mala Buni stayed substantive Caretaker Chairman, Bello was only acting in his lack.
He worried: “Since the creation of this CECPC on June 25, 2020, whenever the chairman is not around and Governor Sani Bello is around, he acts on behalf of the acting Chairman. It has constantly been the case that has actually never ever changed. It has actually constantly held true.
“And now we have a convention on the 26th of March, the chairman wrote a letter and sending, for his leave to opt for medical treatment. These are 2 emergency situations. He has a medical emergency that can not wait for the convention. We have a convention that can not wait on him to be healthy. One has to leave for the other. The Chairman left, transferred a letter, Governor Sani Bello has actually been acting appropriately. What is the problem? Why is it? Why is it challenging for individuals to merely understand that? “
