Plateau APC leader picks hole in INEC timetable on by-elections



The Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Plateau, Mr Rufus Bature, has expressed concern about holding by-elections and APC national convention on the same day — Feb. 26.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) fixed Feb. 26 for by-elections in seven states, including Plateau.

The by-elections however, coincides with APC national convention slated to hold on the same day.

Bature, while interacting with newsmen in Jos, said that national leadership of the party was aware of the clash.

“The party is aware of this challenge and I hope they will do something about it in the next few days.

“This is because seven states are affected by the clash in date,” he said.

The chairman stated that irrespective of the development, the state chapter of the party would be set for the national convention

Bature stated that Plateau would decide on the day of the convention the candidates they would support.

“Where Nigerians will be going is where Plateau will team up to build a formidable party that we will be able to understand ourselve.(NAN)
