APC postpones its national convention indefinitely

The All Progressives Congress (APC), the ruling party, has postponed its national conference indefinitely.
The party had planned to have its convention on February 26, 2022, however difficulties including office zoning and crises in several areas posed a threat.
Governor Mai Mala Buni and Senator John James Akpanudoedehe, Chairman and Secretary of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, respectively, alerted the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of the new situation in a letter dated February 21, 2022.
“This notification supersedes APC/NHDQ/INEC/019/22/14, our previous notice for the National Convention.” This is based on a review of our party’s constitution.
”In furtherance to Article 85 of the Electoral Act, 2010 (as amended) and compliance with Section 12:6 of our Party Constitution, we hereby write to notify the Commission that our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has scheduled to hold its zonal congresses on Saturday 26th March, 2022.
Kindly arrange for your officials to monitor the exercise accordingly.
While hoping to receive your cooperation, please accept the assurances of our highest esteem.” The party is, however, yet to communicate a new date for the convention.
