The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) today, inaugurated some members of the now disbanded State Executive Committees as new Chairmen for the party’s State Caretaker Committees.
Recall that the National Executive Council (NEC) of APC, had dissolved all its executive committees across the states and zones in the country on Wednesday, December 9, 2020.
As disclosed in a statement on the party’s official twitter account, members of the dissolved organ now constitute a Caretaker Committee till the congress elects new leaders to “pilot activities of the party for the next four years”
The inauguration took place during a meeting between the Chairman, APC Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Governor Mai Mala Buni, represented by his Secretary, Sen. John James Akpanudoedehe, and State Chairmen at the party’s National Secretariat.
The new acting Chairmen are also mandated to inaugurate the Caretaker Committees of Local Governments and Wards in seven days.
“In addition, you are hereby mandated to, in a similar way, inaugurate the respective Caretaker Committees of Local Governments and Wards within the next one week. As part of the transitional activities, you are already aware of the decision to commence membership registration/revalidation. You will be required as State Caretaker Committee members to provide the needed leadership and guidance for a successful exercise in line with all the guidelines that is provided”, the statement read in part.
The APC NEC is the second highest decision making organ of the party after the congress.
