Port Harcourt – The Forum of Chairmen of All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Diaspora has commended the party`s leadership for including its members in the planning committee for the forthcoming national convention.
Mr Lawal Ayoola, the spokesman of the Forum, gave the commendation in a telephone interview from Gothenburg, Sweden, on Thursday.
The APC will hold its national convention on May 14, ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Ayoola said that the forum was happy to be part of the 63-man planning committee for the convention.
“It is a welcome development and a great indication that the party`s leadership is ready to further strengthen its wide-spread base and tap into the wealth of experience of its members in the Diaspora.
“The party`s inclusion of two chapters to represent the 12 accredited Diaspora chapters in organising the forth coming national convention is a timely and appropriate decision.
“The Diaspora members of the party are eager to contribute to the success of the convention,” he said.
Ayoola said that Diaspora members would play an active role in reinforcing the party`s greatness, having been truly committed to its cause since inception.
He said that such decision would inspire and encourage existing and potential members of the party across the globe as well as fortify the party’s growth and development in and outside the country.
“This, we hope, will put to rest the illegal activities of imposters that are parading themselves as recognised chapters in different Diaspora countries.
`We wish the leadership and entire organising committee a successful event,” Ayoola said. (NAN)
