The All Progressives Congress (APC) has postponed its mid-term national convention earlier schedule for October 31st until the first quarter of 2018.
This was confirmed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi, while speaking to newsmen on Wednesday in Abuja.
Abdullahi, however, said the meetings of the party’s National Caucus and National Executive Committee (NEC) would hold next week.
He said: ”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.”
Though no reason was given for this resolution, it is understood that it might be connected to the party’s funding challenge and the fear that the convention might be used to effect an ”unexpected leadership change” in the ruling party.
