If the chairmanship is zoned to the north, that may be the clearest indication yet that the presidency will go to the south. A source privy to the information said the ruling party is considering February 26 as the date of the convention. Some of the governors of the ruling party had called for his resignation during a meeting at the federal capital territory (FCT) on Sunday night. Advertisement TheCable also understands that President Muhammadu Buhari would be briefed after the APC caretaker committee led by Mai Mala Buni, Yobe governor, picks the zoning panel. The appropriate organ of the party that will announce a date for the national convention is the CECPC,” NAN quoted him as saying. The convention has generated controversy in the ranks of the ruling party. While many party members — especially APC governors — have be held soon, other party members such as Orji Uzor Kalu, senate chief whip, have called for it to be postponed to a later month. “The CECPC, having realised that no less than six states will be going to the polls for various bye-elections on February 26, 2022, decided to plant a February 25 date in the media knowing full well that the convention cannot be taking place at a time bye-elections in which the party would be participating will also be taking place across different states in the country.

Advertisement Kalu had argued that there are issues in the party across the country that need to be addressed before the convention is held.” Advertisement. Most of the states that the APC control have completed ward, LGA and state congresses — a prerequisite for the convention. Zamfara, which has party factions, is among the few APC states that have not conducted all the levels of congresses. The party is expected to have a national working committee (NWC) at the end of the convention. Advertisement Buni has been in charge of the party since June 2020 when the national executive committee (NEC) dissolved the NWC led by Adams Oshiomhole, former APC national chairman. We wonder why other members of the CECPC have continued to tolerate the unilateral decision making and dictatorial excesses of the Chairman of the Committee.
