From Isa Dangana, Minna
The All Progressives Congress (APC) Caretaker Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) has inaugurated convention planning sub-committees ahead of the March 26 National Convention.
The governor of Niger State, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello and Acting Chairman CECPC of the party, inaugurated the chairmen and secretaries of the sub-committees at the National Secretariat of the party in Abuja.
Sani-Bello said the selection process was made based on the track records, experience and loyalty of the committee members to the party.
He urged them to exhibit same qualities towards the success of the convention submitted for consideration in the committees were reduced, urging those whose names were screened out to be patient and work with those selected for the task ahead.
“I know a lot of our party faithful want to serve in one way or the other in various committees as their support or contribution, however, we must be mindful that everyone cannot be a member of the sub-committees,” he said.
He explained that names of other members of the sub-committees would be made public as soon as they were released to the secretariat.
Sani-Bello commended members of the CECPC for a job well done despite the limited time given to them.
According to him, those who have been monitoring events at the national secretariat have started frantic efforts to secretary.
Other committees are Central Planning, Election Appeal, Security, Medical and Finance sub-committees.
Responding on behalf of other members of the committees, the Co-Chairman, Convention Conference sub-committee and governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, pledged to carry out their tasks diligently for the success of the convention, thanking the CECPC for finding them worthy of the assignments.
The event was attended by some top APC members, including governors of Zamfara, Jigawa and Ekiti States as well as former Senate President, Mr. Chimaroke Nnamani
