APC bars political appointees from voting at convention
The All Progressives Congress has barred political appointees from voting at it’s national convention holding on Saturday.
This is in line with Section 84(12) of the Electoral Act 2022 which bans political appointees from voting or to be voted for during convention or election.
This was contained in a press statement on Thursday titled, “Attention to political office holders who were elected as delegates”, the party said, “The National Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee of APC has declared that all political appointees who were elected as delegates to the National Convention slated for 26/3/2022 SHALL NOT VOTE in view of the controversy surrounding Section 84 (12) of the Electoral Act,2022.
“However, political appointees can still attend as observers.”
This is a fallout of the contentious clause 84(12) of the electoral act which stops all appointees to be voted for or to be delegates during conventions.
The National Assembly has however, vowed to appeal the judgement.
