Convention: Can APC Bridge Generation Gap In Party Leadership?

Thu Jan 13th, 2022 - Borno

In light of the “Not-too- young-to- run law which encourages more youth participation in politics, the focus seems to have shifted to the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of their selection of a national chairman.

The party is set to produce a National Working Committee (NWC) to take over from the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker Extraordinary convention committee, after the Adams Oshiomhole-led leadership was dissolved in 2020.

Even though aspirants have shown interest in the office of APC national chairman, new revelations have emerged that the party can’t hold its national convention in February.

LEADERSHIP reports that at least, over nine people have indicated interest to contest for the national chairman of the APC, with majority from the North Central region.
