A group within the All Progressives Congress (APC), under the aegis of Progressive Mandate Movement (PMM), has challenged the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker/ Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee to organise a national convention on February 5, 2022.
The top echelon of the APC had recently met with President Mubammadu Buhari at the State House in Abuja, where it was agreed that the convention would hold in February 2022, for the election of a new crop of National Working Committee (NWC), but no specific date was announced.

In a statement on Sunday in Abuja, the group’s National Coordinator, Hon. Abdullahi Mohammed, and the Secretary, Comrade Adekunle Fijabi, said the party should do things right in order to retain power in 2023.
“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 (PDP) some advantages, making it look like nobody is in charge of the governing party.
“We, therefore, call on the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led National Caretaker Committee not to go beyond February 5, 2022, 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,” the group said.
