The All Progressives Congress has barred political appointees from voting at its convention holding on Saturday.
The party made this known in a press statement on Thursday.
By this statement, the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, the Ministers of Transport as well as Labour and Employment, Rotimi Amaechi, and Chris Ngige respectively and other political appointees would not be able to vote at the national convention on Saturday.
The statement was titled, ‘Attention to political office holders who were elected as delegates’.
It read, “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.”
