The All Progressives Congress, APC, is set to hold an extraordinary national convention on Wednesday, October, 29, 2014 in Abuja to approve amendments to the party’s constitution as well as adopt its manifesto ahead of the 2015 general elections.
This was made known in a statement released on Sunday in Lagos by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed.
According to the statement, the proposed amendment, when approved at the national convention, will align the party’s constitution better with the Electoral Act and also allow the APC to function better.
The statement also stated that the convention would implement the six-point manifesto that was extracted from the one submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, specifically for the 2015 general elections.
“The manifesto to be adopted at the extraordinary convention of our party is specifically for the 2015 general elections.
“Because of shifting priorities, we do not believe that a party’s manifesto should be one for all time but a document that will adjust to the changing needs of the state.
“In this respect, we have conducted a survey to find out what Nigerians urgently need at the moment to raise their standard of living and ensure their security and welfare, which is the raison d’etre of any government.
“Based on the out outcome of the survey, we have come up with a six-point manifesto, which we extracted from the one submitted to INEC earlier,” the statement explained.Follow Us on Social Media
