The national leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said its National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting would hold on Thursday ahead of the party’s national convention.
Briefing newsmen at the end of the party’s Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee meeting on Tuesday at the APC national secretariat in Abuja, the APC Spokesman, Barrister Ismaeel Ahmed said that the sale of forms for various National Working Committee (NWC) offices had begun.
Barrister Ahmed who is a member of the Caretaker Committee also said the March 26 convention date remained sacrosanct.
He said about 4,000 delegates would vote for new members of the NWC at the convention when asked to state the figure.
Barrister Ahmed announced that the party had pegged the expression of interest and nomination forms for the chairmanship slot at N20 million, national secretary and deputy national chairman (North and South) at N10 million.
He added that forms for the NWC offices go for N5 million while those for NEC positions (deputies) go for N1 million.
Embattled Secretary absent
Meanwhile, the embattled Secretary of the Caretaker Committee, Senator John James Akpanudoedehe, was conspicuously absent during the meeting.
When asked to speak about his absence, Barrister Ahmed said, “I’m not aware he was here.”
Senator Akpanudoedehe had resumed work earlier in the day but later left the party’s national secretariat before the meeting.
He issued a statement in which he dispelled claims that there was a crisis in the party, saying the ruling party was strong and united.
