The All Progressives Congress (APC) is considering establishing the ‘Progressive Institute’, a think tank which will serve as a policy incubator for the party.

In a statement on Friday, Felix Morka, APC national spokesperson, said the national working committee (NWC) of the party received “expert presentations” on the proposed institute at its meeting on Thursday.

Morka said the NWC resolved to establish standing committees on finance, publicity, establishment, intergovernmental conflict and reconciliation, as stipulated by the APC constitution.

“Today, we discussed and adopted resolutions for the establishment of the party’s standing committees,” he said.


“As you may know, the constitution provides for the creation and establishment of several standing committees that are supposed to help the party in thinking through and making decisions on those thematic areas.

“Now, you may recall that at the last national executive committee (NEC) meeting of our party, the NWC was given the authority of NEC to make certain decisions or to conclude certain processes which rightfully are within the authority of the NEC, but that authority was ceded to the NWC to make these decisions.

“So, we have invoked that authority given to the NWC in adopting these resolutions for the creation of the standing committees.”


Morka said the party is planning to mark its 10th anniversary with a series of events.

“We have decided that it is an important event that should be celebrated not just here at the headquarters but with party men and women across the country,” he said.

“They should participate in celebrating this all important event. Ten years they say is a whole lot in the life of any political party.”
