APC Caretaker C’ttee Divided, In Dilemma Over Nat’l Convention

Share This

A huge crack has emerged in the All Progressives Congress (APC) Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) as pressure mounts from high quar­ters to proceed with the February convention arrangement.

The development, GoldmyneTV gathered, has thrown the CE­CPC into serious dilemma over the proposed plan agreed to by President Muhammadu Buhari but which the CECPC has largely approached non­committally.

The disposition of the committee has as a result fueled speculations and allegations that it is deliberately delaying the convention to protect some hidden interests ahead of the party’s 2023 presidential nomina­tion.

Recall that some APC Concerned Youths had late in November pres­sured the committee to announce February as date for the convention after the youths led by Mustapha Audu set up parallel com­mittees and declared them­selves alternative CECPC. ­

The Governor Mai Mala Buni-led CECPC has, howev­er, refused to announce a defi­nite date for the convention, leaving room for speculations and rumours.

It also said it has set up bud­geting and other undisclosed subcommittees to begin work on the convention.

On Wednesday, following another report that the com­mittee has resolved to move the convention to June, the party was forced to refute it, but it does appear that the alleged plan to delay the con­vention has backfired.

A divided CECPC, which met party bureaucrats and stakeholders on Wednesday on the issue, Daily Indepen­dent learnt, had a good num­ber of them insisting that convention must go ahead as earlier announced. Some others it was learnt, however, maintained that February is not feasible considering a number of issues that are yet to be addressed.

GoldmyneTV , howev­er, gathered that the meeting after heated arguments, decid­ed to propose list of subcom­mittees, including those for finance for the ratification by the entire CECPC.

A source at the meeting said the challenge which is confronting the party is the individual interest of some members of the CECPC, which is being played to sub­vert the interest of the party.
