Governors elected under the umbrella of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) , The Progressive Governors Forum (PGF) have met in abuja and have concluded that the party’s convention will be held in February.
It would be recalled that earlier in November, Atiku Bagudu, PGF chairman and governor of Jigawa, said President Muhammadu Buhari approved February for the convention.
Also in a report monitored through TheCable, the national caretaker committee of the APC led by Mai Mala Buni, Yobe governor, will meet over the convention on Tuesday.
Speaking with journalists on Sunday night after a meeting of APC governors, Bagudu said the exact date will be announced by the Buni panel.
“We are one group of stakeholders in the party and our party respects institutions. The appropriate organ of the party that will announce a date for the national convention is the CECPC,” NAN quoted him as saying.
“We discussed our upcoming convention which you may recall I had cause to address the press after we visited President Buhari in November 2021 where the president and the party agreed that the convention would take place in February.
“We took inputs about the reviews and we noted all the misrepresentations in the press that we seek to correct that the PGF is one united body as you can see evidently from the attendance.”
