Happening Now: Atiku absent as APC holds Extra-ordinary Convention.
The opposition All Progressives Congress, APC is currently holding its extra-ordinary convention to approve its amended constitution and adopt its revised six point manifesto without a frontline presidential aspirant, former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
Though the convention may not have anything to do with its planned primaries slated for first week of December, 2014, one of the major aspects of the convention, as monitored by DailyPost, was the address made by presidential aspirants of the party at the convention. While the former VP was conspicuously missing at the convention, other aspirants, Gen. Mohammadu Buhari, Gov. Rochas Okorocha, Gov. Rabiu Kwankwaso and Leadership Newspaper publisher, Nda Isaiah addressed the convention.
It will recalled that there has been rumours about the possibility of the former VP leaving the party for the Peoples Democratic Movement, PDM to actualize his presidential ambition. The Atiku media has however denied the report. His absence has again led to the question as to whether he is still considering other options. DailyPost observed that no reason was given for his (Atiku) absence, even as no one spoke on his behalf.
