The All Progressives Congress (APC) has refuted reports in the media that the party has postponed its mini national convention to 2018.
In a statement issued yesterday and signed by the National Publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi, the party said “there is no truth in the said reports which quoted me as saying that the convention will now hold in the first quarter of next year.
“In the interview I granted to a few journalists in my office, what I said was that the date of the convention can only be determined by the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Party which will meet on the 31st of this month. At no time did I make the statement which the journalists attributed to me to validate the purported postponement of the convention.
He appealed to the general public to take note that reports of postponement of the APC’s mini-convention are false, as the NEC of the party has not made any such decision.
