Despite the crises riddled ward congresses, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has fixed its state congresses for October 2.
The notice for the congrss was issued through a notice on Monday by John Akpanudoedehe, national secretary of the APC caretaker committee, who said the sale of nomination forms will begin on Wednesday.
“APC Schedules State Congresses for Saturday, 2nd October, 2021; begins sale of forms, Wednesday, 15th September, 2021,” the notice reads.
The party held its LGA congresses on September 4.
Before then, it held its ward congresses on July 31 across the country except in the federal capital territory (FCT), Bayelsa and Imo states.
By holding the state congresses, the party is inching closer to its national elective convention.
The party affairs have been piloted by a caretaker committee led by Mai Mala Buni, Yobe state governor since the sack of the national working committee (NWC) led by Adams Oshiomhole, the former national chairman, in June 2020.
The Oshiomhole-led NWC was dissolved after a protracted leadership crisis.
The committee led by Buni was directed by the national executive committee (NEC) to organise a convention where substantive national officers of the party will be elected.
