Chief Odigie who disclosed further that the national convention, was “a mandatory requirement,” added that during the April 29 convention, elections will be conducted into vacant offices arising from deaths, appointments and others.
He said: “We have held consultations with our leadership in the Senate, in the House of Representatives, and with APC governors. We are also going to hold consultation with the ministers as part of the preparation for the national convention, which is a mandatory requirement.
“The purpose of the meeting is very clear. There are a lot of things that must happen in preparation towards our non-elective convention which the states must be actively involved.
“We are going to have state congresses, ward congresses and fill vacancies. We will take the opportunity to fill every single vacancy at all levels of the party arising from deaths, appointments and others. We are also required to elect three delegates, who will participate in the forthcoming convention.
“It is a mandatory mid-term non-elective convention and the purpose is to allow us as a party and as government to sit and see how far we have gone, what we have done right, assess ourselves by bringing our leaders from all over the country to sit us once every two years and exchange ideas and listen to the achievements of their government.”
