APC Convention: Special Committee Summons Aspirants
In order to build further consensus among the aspirants for the various All Progressives Congress leadership positions, the National Convention Committee has invited all the aspirants to a meeting in Abuja on Thursday.
The Secretary of the National Convention Planning Committee, Sen. Victor Ndoma-Egba, said the meeting will hold at the secretariat of the committee at Casa de Lucy Hotel, 525, David Jemibewon Crescent, Gudu District, Abuja by 4pm.
Ndoma-Egba said of the 42 positions being contested, one of the aspirants on Wednesday dropped off, leaving the race to 41.
A member of the committee, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, said the rationale for the meeting is to see if further consensus could be reached among the contestants.
There are indications that during the meeting, some aspirants would be told to drop their ambitions since their names were not in the Unity List already prepared by party leaders.
Unity List, believed to contain the names of preferred candidates of the leaders of the APC, is akin to the one used by the opposition, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during its convention last December.
