The National Caretaker Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will meet this week to zone all party offices ahead of its national convention.
A member of the CECPC told THISDAY on Saturday that the caretaker committee would also set up a zoning committee to address the issue of the zoning of the party’s elective positions.
He said that the expected zoning committee would be guided by equity, justice and fairness by ensuring that all zones and states are fairly represented.
The APC chieftain said the caretaker committee would play the dual role of the NWC and the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party and approve the zoning arrangement before implementation
“We are a child of circumstance. We are playing two roles in one. CECPC is playing the role of both the working committee and the NEC.
“There won’t be any NEC meeting, but we are working with the governors of the party and others to ensure that everything about the convention is set on course and that there will be no trouble. We shall deliver a smooth and transparent convention.
“After our meeting this week, every doubting person will keep quiet. At the end of the day, because there is no NEC, the report of the zoning committee will be sent to the President who is the leader of the party and the governors for their perusal and advice and we are set to go for the February 26 date,” he explained.
