2018 APC Convention Contestants Forum, press briefing presented by Hon. Isa Umar, chairman of the 2018 convention contestants forum. An umbrella body of contestants in the just concluded National convention of their great party APC; as contestants, we were officially screened and issued Certificates of clearance to contest all positions within the party structure at the National and Zonal level in the 2018 National convention held on Saturday 23 June 2018 at the Eagle Square, Abuja.
We campaigned vigorously across the 36 state and FCT, used huge resources in promoting our candidature and the image of the party in social and traditional media and the reason why some of our members did not win remains in the history page of APC National Convention Committee.
We exhibited the most commendable act of total loyalty to the party and leaders across the Six (6) geopolitical zones, which to a large extent ensured smooth and conclusive convention against the permutation and expectation of pundits in the opposition.
We call on leadership of our party and the president to quickly settle all aggrieved members, implement the report of the election appeal committee, and respond to our correspondences so we can collectively focus on ensuring victory for the APC in the forthcoming general election. Our party remains one indivisible APC.
Signed on behalf of the members of the 2018 convention contestants Forum. Hon. Frank Ossai (South South) Hon. Isa Umar (North West) ESV Jibrilla Gadzama (North East) Barr. Fabian Okonkwo (South East) Amb. Fatima Adams (North Central).
