All Progressives Congress says it is recommending a consensus option for the election of party officials at all levels in the forthcoming congresses to reduce possible acrimony.

National Secretary, APC Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee, John Akpanudoedehe, said this in a statement issued on Wednesday in Abuja.

“For us, we have to take into consideration the need to accommodate everyone because APC is a party for all Nigerians.

“We are encouraging states to adopt the consensus arrangement because it saves costs and reduces acrimony.

“That is why when you look at Article 20 of our Constitution which talks about elections, the first thing there is for members to try reaching consensus,” he said.

Akpanudoedehe added that when the consensus option failed, party members could then cast ballots.

He said that the party was making sure that it did not leave any room for the opposition to sponsor people to cause confusion within its fold.


The News Agency of Nigeria reports that APC’s congresses and conventions are expected to commence on July 31 with ward congresses.
