The National Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been granted an indefinite extension of its tenure.
The tenure extension came on the heels of a meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari and the Yobe State Governor Mai Mala Buni-led committee at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The panel is expected to be dissolved upon the conduct of the party’s more crucial national convention for which no date has yet been fixed.
Secretary of the committee, Dr.John Akpanduoehehe, said in a statement that the APC National Executive Committee (NEC), at its last meeting, conferred on the CECPC the power of the National Convention in line with powers provided in Article 13.3 of the Party’s Constitution.
He said the President granted the approval after detailed consideration of the progress report, the schedule of outstanding activities with regards to congresses, the national convention and the forthcoming Anambra State governorship election.
He said the tenure of the caretaker committees at the ward, local government, state and national levels will end immediately elections are held and the executive councils inaugurated.
The Caretaker Committee was inaugurated on June 25, 2020 in the aftermath of the dissolution of the Adams Oshiomole led National Working Committee (NWC).
It was initially billed to operate for six months.
Its tenure was first extended for six months last December by an emergency National Executive Committee (NEC) held at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
