Barring any last minute changes, the All Progressives Congress will today (Thursday), hold a mini convention to elect a new National Publicity Secretary.
A usually reliable source in the party told our correspondent that the mini-convention is being convened to elect a new spokesman for the party.
It was gathered that a former Sports Minister, Bolaji Abdullahi, from Kwara State, was being tipped for the job.
The former occupant of the position, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, also an indigene of Kwara State, resigned from the post to take up appointment as Minister of Information and National Orientation more than a year ago.
The embattled Deputy National Publicity Secretary, of the party, Timi Frank, tried but failed to act in that capacity.
He has taken the party to court when it announced that he has been suspended.
It was however gathered that the leadership of the APC had concluded the plans to elect another spokesman from the North-Central geopolitical zone, with Kwara State emerging the preferred candidate.
The source said Abdullahi might emerge the new spokesman for the APC at a mini-convention expected to hold at the New Chelsea Hotel, Abuja at 11am.
It was also confirmed that delegates from only the six states of North-Central would attend the convention, while the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, members of the National Working Committee as well as governors from the states were billed to attend the convention.
