Nigeria’s ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has scheduled its national convention for February next year, 2022.
This is as a result of the nod given by President Muhammadu Buhari for the convention to hold that day.
The development was disclosed by Kebbi State Governor and Chairman of the Progressive Governors Forum (PGF), Atiku Bagudu.
The governor said this after a closed door meeting with Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The meeting was attended by Chairman of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convemtion Planning Committee, Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State as well as Governor Mohammed Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa State.
Bagudu said the month was chosen to enable the four outstanding states conclude their congresses and festivities in December.
While contributing, Buni said no specific date was chosen because of the need to write the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and consult all stakeholders
