President Buhari Presents 2022 Budget Thursday

President Muhammadu Buhari will determine when the All Progressives Congress(APC) National Convention will hold, Governors elected on the platform of the party may have resolved.

This was the outcome of a meeting by the Governors under the auspices of Progressive Governors’ Forum (PGF) on Sunday night in Abuja.

Chairman of the forum, Abubakar Bagudu, told newsmen after the meeting that the forum will seek an appointment with Buhari on the National Convention of the party.

The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party on June 25, 2020 dissolved the Adams Oshiomhole-led National Working Committee (NWC) and appointed a 13-man Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) led by Yobe Governor Mai Mala Buni to organise, among others the National Convention of the party within six months.

The silence of the CECPC on the convention date has pitched it against some party members.

The caretaker committee Secretary, Senator John James Akpanudoedehe, said stakeholders, not the committee, will fix the date for the national convention.

A source at the Governors’ meeting told The Nation: “The meeting discussed the National Convention but agreed to give Mr. President the honor of fixing the date for the convention.

“You know many things are to be considered in fixing the convention and the Governors resolved that as the leader of the party, Mr. President, should be given the honor to fix the convention date.
