APC excludes political aides from voting at convention
Political appointees have been excluded from voting in the All Progressives Congress (APC) national convention on Saturday March 26.
The Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the ruling party said in a statement that “all political appointees who were elected as delegates to the National Convention slated for 26/3/2022 SHALL NOT VOTE in view of the controversy surrounding Section 84 (12) of the Electoral Act,2022.”
The political appointees can however attend the convention as observers. This is in line with the amended electoral act which barred political appointees from contesting for an electoral office unless they resign.
