The scheduled February 26 national convention of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, now hangs in the balance, following high-level intrigues designed to arrive at a consensus option for most of the positions.
According to APC’s national convention timetable and schedule of activities, the sale of forms for all positions in the National Working Committee, NWC, was to have begun yesterday but some of the aspirants who were at the national secretariat of the party could not get the forms and were asked to come back at another time.
Many party sources told our correspondent that the contract for the printing of the nomination forms was yet to be awarded as at Tuesday.
It was gathered that some influential stakeholders of the party were still working to arrive at a consensus option which they call a “unity list”.
“The nomination forms are not ready. In fact, nobody is talking about the printing of any form here. Under normal circumstances, the party would have advertised the sale of nomination forms, indicating the cost of forms for various offices before now. Or have you seen such an advert?” one of the sources said.
