Congresses: Why APC Recommends Consensus Option – National Secretary

National Secretary of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Sen. John James Akpanudoedehe has said the party was recommending the consensus option for the election of party officials at all levels to reduce acrimony.

Akpanudoedehe stated this in a statement issued on Wednesday.

According to him, “For us, we have to take into consideration the need to accommodate everyone because the APC is a party for all Nigerians.

“We are encouraging states to adopt the consensus arrangement because it saves costs and reduces acrimony.
That is why when you look at Article 20 of our constitution which talks about elections, the first thing there is for members to try reaching a consensus. When that fails, then you go to cast ballots.”

He also noted that the party was ensuring that there is no room for the opposition PDP to sponsor confusion in the ruling party.

“We are making sure we do not leave any room for the opposition, especially the Peoples Democractic Party to sponsor people to cause confusion in our midst.”
