Bello, when inaugurating the committees, Wednesday at the Buhari Buhari house in Abuja said the convention date is sacrosanct, says the new panels are being reduced to a manageable size for effective delivery.
“We have made efforts to ensure a successful National Convention and part of those efforts is to inaugurate Chairmen and Secretaries of the Sub-Committees in consideration of track records and loyalty to the party.
“We task you to exhibit these qualities to ensure the success of the National Convention. I know a lot of our party faithfuls wanted in one way or the other to serve in various committees as their support or contributions towards a healthy party.
“However, we must be mindful that we cannot accommodate everyone in the Sub-Committees. So we trimmed down the number to a workable size without undermining everyone and I think this decision is the best for our party.
“I want to also commend the Caretaker Committee members for their efforts in compiling the list because our party being the largest party in nigeria, probably in Africa. They went through hell because everyone wants to serve but I think they did their best. If you didn’t see your name in the list please don’t be offended. I am sure other opportunities will come in future.
“I want to remind you that you have to work hard to ensure that the National Convention will go on 26th of March 2022. That day is sacrosanct”. He Assured
Responding on behalf of Committee members, Governor of Ekiti state, Kayode Fayemi thanked the party for the role given to them. He promised to commit their zeal so as to ensure a successful convention come march 26.
