The National Secretary, APC Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee, John Akpanudoedehe, announced this in a statement he issued on Wednesday in Abuja. According to him, the schedule of activities ahead of the party’s national convention is as seen below:
He said that the receiving of the interim report of the National Reconciliation Committee has been slated for January 31, 2022 while the consideration and adoption of Reports of State Congresses would hold on February 2, 2022 ans inauguration of the State Executives for February 03, 2022.

“Screening of all aspirants vying for National Offices – February 20 – February 22. Screening Appeals to hear and resolve complaints arising from the screening exercise – February 23, 2022.
“Accreditation of all statutory and elected delegates to the National Convention – February 24 to February 25, 2022.
