There are more than one indications that the national convention of the All Progressives Congress earlier projected to hold in June, may no longer hold.
For one, the ongoing membership registration which has been extend.
Then the need to resolve the litigation in the Rivers State chapter and reconcile aggrieved party members.,even in other states too. So much reconciliation that needed to be done.
YOU NEWS also learnt that, it’s not possible to hold the convention in June as was earlier envisaged.
“You see, the membership registration and revalidation will end on March 31st. Our Christian brothers are observing lent and conventional wisdom dictates that we allow them to observe the religious period.”
“Now, as soon as they conclude, our Muslim brothers will commence the month Ramadan and you know, if not for the COVID-19, many would travel for the lesser hajj for the duration of this period.
Another clear reason is the ward, local government and state congresses delegates election for the convention, It is a process that takes time.
“Let’s not deceive ourselves, congresses at the ward and state levels are not a joke. Appeal committees will be set up to review cases which definitely will come up. These will have to be thrashed out before the national convention.
