The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has postponed its state congresses nationwide till October 16.

The exercise was initially scheduled to hold on Saturday, October 2.

According to close sources of the Acting National Chairman and Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, the development was as a result of a consultation with President Muhammadu Buhari.

Recall that between July 31 and September 4, the party had successfully conducted its ward and local government congresses.

Despite irregularity claims, Gov Mala Buni said the congresses were “very successful” but in the same vein threatened to sanction deviant members in some concerned states.

The state congresses are now expected to prepare the ground for the party’s zonal congresses and later its much anticipated national convention where a new crop of national leaders will be elected.

Meanwhile, the original plan was for the interim leaders to steer the affairs of the party for six months in order to set the pace for a national convention.
