The All Progressive Congress(APC) says is going ahead with its planned
the National Executive Committee meeting (NEC) scheduled to hold on 17th march,2022.
The Party said that it has not fallen short of the law in anyway with regards to the letter it sent to the Independent National Electoral Commision (INEC) to monitor its forthcoming National Executive Committee meeting.
Mr Ismail Ahmed, the National Youth Leader in the APC Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), said this on Friday in Abuja while speaking with newsmen.
The INEC in a letter, had rejected an invitation to an emergency meeting of the APC National Executive Committee (NEC) ahead of its natioal convention.
INEC’s response, dated March 9 and signed by its Secretary, Rose Anthony, was titled: “Re: Invitation to the emergency meeting of the National Executive Committee”, and addressed to the National Chairman, APC CECPC.
The commission drew the attention of the APC CECPC to the fact that the letter of invitation was not signed by Gov. Mai Mala Buni, the National Chairman APC CECPC, and its Secretary, Sen. John Akpanudoedehe, in accordance with extant laws.According to the commission, this is contrary to the provision of Article 1.1.3 of INEC Regulations and Guidelines for Political Party Operations (2018).
Ahmed, however, said the APC had complied with all the rules and had appropriately notified INEC, adding that it is no longer an issue.He added that Prof.
Tahir Maman, who oversees the party’s legal department would speak on the issue in due time.
He said there is no need for a 21 days notice since the party has earlier issued a notice to the commission of it’s intent to conduct its national convention on February 26
The party also restated it stand to take responsibility and to give full support to Governor, David Umahi of Ebonyi state to make sure he maintains his sits solidly and undistracted.
