Abuja stands still for APC National Convention 2022

Abuja stands still for APC National Convention 2022

All eyes are on the Eagle Eagle Square, Abuja, where Nigeria’s ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) will hold its national convention today.

All nearby roads leading to the venue have been closed for security reasons.

Before today, party leaders and other stakeholders have had several meetings with President Muhammadu Buhari who favours the emergence of consensus candidates.

Elections will be held for positions where the party is unable to reach consensus.

Today, leaders will emerge and mount several posts as the party prepares to produce viable presidential, governorship and other candidates for the 2023 general election.

The slots up for grabs include:

1. National chairman
2. National secretary
3. Deputy national secretary
4. National vice chairmen of the six zones
5. National organising secretary
6. National legal adviser
7. National financial secretary
8. National welfare secretary
9. National treasurer
10. National publicity secretary
11. National auditor
12. National women leader
13. National youth leader
14. Leader of persons living with disabilities
15. Deputy national financial secretary
16. Deputy national legal adviser
17. Deputy national treasurer
18. Deputy welfare secretary
19. Deputy national publicity secretary
20. Deputy national auditor
21. Deputy national women leader
22. Deputy national youth leader
23. Zonal secretaries of the six zones
24. Zonal youth leaders in the six zones
25. Zonal organising secretaries across all zones and the six ex-officio members

If there are indeed 41 million registered APC members as the party claims, then APC is the fourth largest political party in the world.

APC only trails:

1. Bharatiya Janata Party, BJP, of India – 180 million members

2. Chineese Communist Party, CCP – 91.148 million members

3. Democratic Party of USA – 48.02 million
