The Adamawa state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has postponed its ward congress by 24 hours.

This is as a result of protests by some stakeholders, including Nuhu Ribadu, former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), and Babachir Lawal,  ex-secretary to the government of the federation.

Musa Mahmud, chairman of the congress committee, announced the postponement after a meeting with some party chieftains.

The party leaders protested that many candidates were yet to obtain the nomination forms to contest the election.

Abdulaziz Nyako, a serving senator, Abubakar MoAllayidi, and Marcus Gundiri, some of the party chieftains, also supported the shifting of congress.

Mahmud said the congress had been postponed to 1pm on Sunday.

The national executive council (NEC) of the party had extended the tenure of the national working committee and state executives by a year.

But President Muhammadu Buhari later withdrew his support, calling for congresses and convention.

The local government congress will hold next week and states in two weeks time but no date has been fixed for the convention.
