INEC asks ADC to conduct national convention
The African Democratic Congress' Board of Trustees Chairman, Senator Patricia Akwashiki, has been requested by the Independent National Electoral Commission, or INEC, to organise a convention to elect a new National Working Committee for the party.

According to a source at INEC, Chief Ralph Okey Nwosu, the National Chairman of ADC, was instructed to drop plans for a tenure extension after being informed that both his own and the NWC members' terms had already expired in August.

The source said, “The Independent National Electoral Commission has asked the former chairman to bury the idea of seeking tenure extension as his tenure as chairman expired on August 28 2022. Any action taken after the said date by the former chairman and NWC is null and void and won’t be recognized by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

“The Commission maintains that by the constitution of the African Democratic Congress the only authority recognized is the BOT Chairman Mrs. Patricia Akwashiki and the NEC of the party made up of the State Chairmen.

“The Independent National Electoral Commission’s position is that the BOT Chairman must conduct a convention to usher in a new NWC.”
