The national convention of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) will take place in February 2022.
This was approved by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Chairman of the Progressives Governors’ Forum and Kebbi State Governor, Atiku Bagudu, announced this on Monday in Abuja.
He briefed State House correspondents after a meeting with the President at the Presidential Villa in the nation’s capital.
Governor Bagudu was accompanied to the villa by the Chairman of the APC National Caretaker Committee and Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni, as well as Governor Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa State.
He told State House correspondents that the meeting was to brief the President on the decision of the Progressives Governors Forum when the members met on Sunday night.
According to Bagudu, the governors resolved that the convention should hold in February 2022 and the same suggestion was proposed to the President for approval.
He, however, stated that that party’s leadership has yet to decide on a specific date to conduct its national convention.
The governor said the party would notify the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) while it works out a timetable.
