The Governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Sule has stated that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has only decided on a date for its national convention but that the location is yet to be determined.
The Nasarawa State Governor stated this while discussing on a national television programme.
He said, “the President is agreeing to the month of February. So, he is also convinced that February is feasible and probably the right month for us to have the convention. That was the report that we saw as was being conveyed by the chairman of our party and the chairman of APC governors”.
The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), had on Monday approved February 2022 as the date for the party’s national convention.
Sule also noted that the governors had yet to debate the zoning of the NWC offices when questioned about it, emphasizing that the first priority was to choose a date for the conference.
When asked if the APC was also considering consensus candidates for the NWC, Sule said, “APC is not PDP. We cannot just copy what the PDP is doing. As a party, we will sit down and look at what will be the best for the country and for our party, and we will take a decision”.
The governor, on the other hand, stated that Nigerians believe the president and chairmanship will cycle from the north to the south and from the south to the north, respectively. However, there is nothing official about what has already been established.
