He said: “We are very happy about all the preparations, everything is in place, you can see what we call a very professional arrangement for tomorrow.”

He added that some aspirants may however drop from the race before the convention.

“Politics is about conflict and resolution, today we are meeting the aspirants to interview them, there will be a give and take so that it will be a smooth operation on Saturday.”

Also speaking, former Governor of Zamfara, Senator Ahmed Yerima, who is the Chairman of the Convention Subcommittee for Accreditation, said the committee had commenced the screening and accreditation of delegates from the 36 states and Federal Capital Territory.

He assured that delegates would be properly scrutinised before entering the convention venue.

Yerima said: “We are going to put numbering and security code so that as soon as you come to the gate you are properly identified, screened and then you enter.

“Even as they vote inside, you have another card that you present so you can be allowed to vote.”

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the tenure of the Chief John Odigie-Oyegun-led APC national executive ends on June 25.
