The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday forwarded two letters to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on current developments in the party.

In the first letter dated June 25, 2020, with serial number APC/HNDQ/INEC/l 9/020/014 and addressed to the National Chairman of INEC, the party informed the commission about the dissolution of its National Working Committee and the appointment of a caretaker committee to run its affairs for the next six months.

The party also introduced members of the newly constituted caretaker committee to the commission.

The APC on Thursday dissolved the party’s NWC headed by Adams Oshiomhole and put in place the caretaker committee to reset the party for future challenges.

The committee is headed by the Yobe State governor, Mai Buni.

The first letter read: “Dear Sir, COMPOSITION OF A NATIONAL CARETAKER COMMITTEE OF APC

“I wish to please inform your Commission that, the National Executive Committee of our great Party at its 8th resumed meeting on Thursday, 25th June 2020, approved the immediate dissolution of the National Working Committee.

“The National Executive Committee also constituted a National Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee with the following as members:

The caretaker committee held its inaugural meeting on Thursday afternoon and agreed to hold the state’s governorship primaries on that date.

The second letter with reference number APC/NHDO/INEC/19/020/013 and titled: “Notice of Conduct of Primaries,” read: “Please be informed that we have scheduled to hold our Party’s Primary Election in respect of, Ondo State Governorship Election on 20th July 2020.
