The forum is the platform of all APC governors.

The APC Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee, CECPC, postponed the party’s national convention from Feb. 26 to March 26.

It released a new timetable and schedule of activities for the National Convention and Zonal Congresses on Monday.

According to the new timetable, activities for the national convention will begin on Feb. 24 with the publication of committees for the zonal congresses.

He appreciated Nigerians for showing interest in happenings within the party’s rank and file, adding that the forum would continue to work with other stakeholders to enthrone good governance.

He said the forum was conscious of the fact that Nigerians held the APC in high esteem, and would not disappoint them.

“We will work with other stakeholders to ensure that we deliver transparently and honestly, national executives that will continue to earn the confidence of all party members and of Nigerians,’’ he said.
