The All Progressives Congress is meeting on Sunday, to decide a substantive date for the party’s national convention.
This is partly in response to the caution by President Muhammadu Buhari, in an interview aired on the Nigerian Television Authority on Thursday.
In the interview, President Buhari warned that by dilly-dallying, the APC may be setting itself up for defeat by the opposition, PDP.
The Chairman of the Northern Governors’ Forum and Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong, who met with the President at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja, on Friday, said President Buhari’s caution is a wake-up call for the party to have a seamless convention to avoid disintegrating.
Lalong who spoke with State House Correspondents said Sunday’s meeting will harp on the proposed date for the convention.
He said ”the APC governors have now assured the President that the convention would hold in February.
According to him, ”the party will redouble its effort and do the right thing.
While noting that the APC is a hodgepodge, the Plateau State Governor said what matters is that the Party elects its representatives at the end of the day.
