Stakeholders and members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have greeted President Muhammadu Buhari’s recent declaration that the party’s national convention on March 26 will go ahead as scheduled as comforting.
Despite the Independent National Electoral Commission’s views, they considered that the President was on the same page as millions of party members regarding the need of holding the party convention on March 26. (INEC).
Remember that last week, the acting Caretaker Chairman of the APC and Governor of Niger State, Abubakar Bello, wrote and signed a letter to the INEC.
Bello and Mamman signed the letter, which was intended to serve as notification to the commission of the APC’s plan to hold the election.
But INEC, had while responding, in a letter signed by the Secretary to the Commission, Mrs Rose Omoa Oriaran-Anthony and dated March 9, 2022, said the party must give it 21 days notice and that the letter wasn’t signed by the Caretaker Chairman, Mai Mala Buni and the Secretary, Senator John Akpanudoedehe.
It said: “The Commission draws your attention to the fact that the notice for the meeting was not signed by the National Chairman (Buni) and National Secretary (Akpanudoedehe) of the CECPC, contrary to the provision of the Article 1.1.3 of the Commission’s Regulations and Guidelines for Political Party Operations (2018).
“Furthermore, the APC is reminded of the provision in Section 82(1) of the Electoral Act 2022, which requires ‘at least 21 days’ notice of any convention, congress, conference or meeting convened for the purpose of “merger” and electing members of executive committees, other governing bodies or nominating candidates for any elective offices”.
