The APC has slated 26 March for the convention where all the offices of the National Executive Committee of the party will be filled.

 

The 20 offices that make up the party’s National Working Committee would also be filled.

It is the positions of the NWC that aspirants are jostling for in view of the important role the committee plays in the party.

The three most important positions which the president has particularly signed off are the post of the National Chairman, for which he had reportedly annointed former Nasarawa State Governor and Senator, Mr Abdullahi Adamu, thus making him the sole candidate; National Secretary with the acting secretary, Mr John Akpanudoedehe to be made substantive and National Organising Secretary zoned to the North East.

Initial lobby was that former Minister of Aviation, Mr Femi Fani-Kayode, would be endorsed and elected through a consensus to be the party’s National Publicity Secretary but that did not see the light of day following his multiple indictments by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, EFCC and prosecution in court for graft and fraud.

He is also a member of the publicity committee thus being ruled out of any elective position.
