Five aspirants have reportedly picked up the All Progressives Congress’ chairmanship Expression of Interest and Nomination forms ahead of the party’s National Convention.
Prof. Al-Mustapha Ussiju, the party’s Director of Organisation, the APC Caretaker Extra Ordinary Convention Planning Committee, in a statement on Tuesday declared commencement of the sale of forms.
The five aspirants who have purchased the forms for the chairmanship position are Malam Saliu Mustapha, and a former governor of Nasarawa, Abdullahi Adamu.
Others are another former governor of Nasarawa, Tanko Al-Makura; and Minister of Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Affairs, George Akume.
A former governor of Zamfara, Mr Abdulaziz Yari, from the North-East, has also purchased the form despite the party zoning the position to the North-Central.
From the North East, a former governor of Borno State, Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff, is also considering picking up the chairmanship form from the party’s national secretariat to participate in the 26th March 2022 APC convention.
The convention is to be attended by 4,000 delegates from across the country where new national executives will be appointed to oversee the party’s affairs.
