Another category believes the emergence of new national officers will expose the zoning arrangement the APC intends to adopt ahead of 2023.
The other category has those close to the current leadership and are seeking to retain their seats or aspire for political offices in the next general elections.
In a statement Friday night, the APC Forum of State Caretaker Chairmen declared it was on good terms with the CECPC.
Ali Buka-Dalori, the head and Borno Caretaker Committee Chairman, recalled that they unanimously agreed on the need for an extension of the membership and revalidation process.
“We are happy the CECPC acceded to our pleas by granting a three-week extension to accommodate states requiring additional time to conclude the exercise and capture millions of Nigerians desirous of joining the APC.
“At no time during the meeting of APC state caretaker chairmen or in our briefing to media organisations was anything related to tenure elongation deliberated or mentioned.”
Buka-Dalori noted that the CECPC has surpassed its mandate to reposition and bring unity to the ruling party.
“We will continue to support its efforts to ensure the completion of all the tasks assigned by the National Executive Committee (NEC) and further entrench the APC as a truly progressive political platform”, he said.
