A group in Nigeria’s governing party, the All Progressives Congress, APC is demanding that the party’s Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee hold the party’s National Convention by 5th February, 2022.

The group under the aegis of the Progressive Mandate Movement (PMM) said if the processes for the National Convention is not released by 5th January, they will launch a protest at the Party’s National Secretariat in Abuja.

The group’s National Coordinator, Abdullahi Mohammed and the Secretary, Adekunle Fijabi said this in a press statement released to journalists in Abuja.

PMM, which claimed to be a foundational group of APC, called on the Caretaker Committee led by Governor Mai Mala Buni not to prolong the date a day beyond February 5

“For some of our current leaders who were there during the merger process that led to the formation of APC, this organisation has always been in the forefront of upholding the progressive ideology of our party and we will not stop at this critical period.

“The delay in conducting the overdue APC national convention is already giving the opposition Peoples Democratic Party some advantages, making it look like nobody is in charge of the governing party.

“We, therefore, call on Governor Mai Mala Buni-led National Caretaker Committee not to go beyond February 5 to hold our party’s National Convention.

“We also warn that if nothing is made public before January 5, 2022, we shall launch an aggressive operation #OCCUPYAPCNATIONALSECRETARIAT to force our leaders to do the right thing.

“We made bold to say that we do not have another party and we will not allow our leaders to make the mistake that will eventually cause us to lose elections in 2023,” the statement declared
