The Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, has urged the leadership of the All Progressives Congress to postpone the party’s convention slated for February next year.
The former governor of Abia State stated this in a letter addressed to the National Chairman Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Governor Mai Mala Buni, and members of the planning committee.
Kalu, in the letter, sighted by our correspondent in Abuja on Thursday, appealed to the party to consider conducting the presidential primaries and election of the National Working Committee of the party on the same day
In the acknowledged letter, Kalu warned that holding the convention in February without sorting out the minor disagreements that arose during the congresses would lead to implosion.
Kalu’s letter with the title, ‘Urgent Appeal For Postponement of APC National Convention,’ read, “It is with a sense of commitment and unflinching loyalty to our great party, the All Progressives Congress, that I write to you the content of this letter regarding the national convention of our party slated for February 2022.
“It is imperative to commend your sterling leadership qualities in helping to stabilise our great party across the six geopolitical zones, with high profile defections to the party to your credit as an outstanding party leader.
“I must also commend your peaceful disposition and sense of commitment to the growth of our party which also saw very peaceful congresses across the states. However, it is pertinent to note that some states are embroiled in crisis with multiple factions. (Punch)
