APC postpones state congresses

22 April 2014, 14:07

Lagos - The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Sunday postponed its state congresses, scheduled for Wednesday, April 23, to allow its governors to attend the rescheduled expanded National Security Council meeting.

The congresses are now billed for April 26.

President Goodluck Jonathan had invited all governors to an expanded security meeting for April 23 to address the security situation in the country.

A statement by the party's Interim National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, stated that the postponement was part its stand to be part of efforts to end  insurgency in the country.

It said APC believed that security issues in the country should not be politicised.

"Despite belonging to the opposition, our governors are not any less of stakeholders on the issue of our nation's security.

''As a matter of fact, three of the states worst hit by the ongoing  insurgency are being presided over by APC governors, hence they are indispensable to any effort aimed at ending the security  conundrum,'' the statement said.
