The National Executive Committee of the ruling All Progressives Congress has extended the tenure of the party’s caretaker extraordinary convention planning committee.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the committee attended by the President Muhammadu Buhari who made this known after a meeting of the committee attended by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, and other party chiefs said said the caretaker extraordinary convention planning committee of the ruling All Progressives Congress-led by Governor Mai Buni has succeeded in bringing a new atmosphere of hope to the party.

Earlier, at the ongoing meeting of the party’s National Executive Committee at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, the President expressed delight that through the efforts of the 13-member committee set up on June 25, 2020, many party members who had earlier defected from the APC had returned while others have also declared for the party.

He said, “I have received periodic briefings from the caretaker extraordinary convention planning committee, as well as other leaders of the party.

“I am convinced that in the last five months, since the appointment of the caretaker committee the initiatives taken have brought remarkably new atmosphere of hope in the party.

“Healthy debates are now taking place and the potential for organs of the party to affirm majority positions as the decision of the party is now possible.

“What is required now is for all of us as leaders of the party to maintain discipline and ensure that this new momentum is protected, sustained and the decisions of party organs are respected by every member.

“Despite the challenge to restore peace in the party and the series of elections at hand, the fact that we have gained more members and that we are not losing members to the opposition under the present interim leadership, indicates improvement of the party.

” In fact, we have begun to win back our members who left us and other notable political leaders are being attracted to our party.”
