The President said that since the party could not change the leadership of the CECPC without infringing on the time limit set by INEC, and the fact that the current uncertainties and controversies “pose a real threat to the party,” he has therefore directed as follows:
More troubles for APC as Nigeria’s chief election body insists only Gov. Buni and Sen. Akpanudoedehe, CCEPC Chairman and Secretary, respectively, can sign NEC invitation letter. Will this party be on the ballot in 2023?
“Whether APC will produce both party leaders and candidates for the 2023 elections who can justify the trust invested in them, depends a lot on how all the current leadership challenges facing the party is resolved,” Salihu Moh. Lukman writes in Opinions.
The PDP has again declared and cautioned all intending aspirants on the platform of APC for various positions in 2023 to note that the party is legally defunct, structurally crippled and no longer a legitimate and valid vehicle to field candidates for elections under Nigeria’s extant laws. What do you think?
Finally, the Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CCEPC) of the APC says it has approved March 26 as the new date for the party’s overdue National Convention with a timetable/schedule of events that spans 30 days.
The Progressives Governors Forum (PGF) – of which the APC CECPC Chairman, Gov. Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State is a member – has given assurance that the party’s National Convention will hold in February.
PDP has declared that the crisis in 20 state chapters of the APC, where parallel congresses were held on Saturday to elect state officers of the party, is a clear signal for reasons why our nation is in a disaster.
The PDP has explained why they consider as a nullity, the ward congress conducted by the APC.
“This issues of justice, equity and lack of respect for our members and their rights is a greater danger to the APC in Nigeria than the threat of litigation over Governor Buni,” Senator Magnus Abe writes in Atlantic Post Opinions.
The PDP has berated the Governor Mai Mala Buni faction of the APC for politicizing the manifest failure of the Buhari regime to stem the tide of insecurity, particularly in Northern Nigeria.
