Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the Interim National Publicity Secretary of the
party disclosed Tuesday at the end of the party’s 9th Interim National
Executive Committee meeting (NEC) in Abuja.

He said that APC had also scheduled its Ward, Local Government and
State Congresses for April 5, 12 and 23 respectively.

The party used the opportunity to commiserate with the families of the
people who died on Saturday, March 15 at several venues of the job
test by the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS).

“We also extend our sympathy and prayers to those who were injured in
the stampede and wish them a speedy recovery.”

Mohammed called for investigation to unravel the circumstances that
led to the death of the applicants and what happened to their
application fees.

He accused the management and officials of NIS “for their inability to
provide better arrangement that could have saved precious lives.

“The death constitutes the latest in a series of events that have
turned Nigeria into a massive killing field in recent times.”

The scribe urged President Goodluck Jonathan to be proactive in the
fight against corruption and incompetence in public and private
institutions in the country.

He stressed the need for the Federal Government to renew its strategy
in addressing insecurity, unemployment and corruption.

Mohammed added that the road-map unveiled recently by APC recognised
the enormity of the challenges facing the country.

“Hence we made job creation our priority, followed by security and the
fight against corruption, among others.

“The APC embodies the hopes and aspirations of the people. We are up
to the task of restoring hope to our people”, Mohammed said.

Mohammed was flanked by Govs. Rochas Okorocha of Imo, Rotimi Amaechi
of Rivers, Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti, Sen. Alli Sherif, Gen. Mohammed
Buhari and Chief Ogbonnoya Onu.

Former Gov. Bola Tinubu of Lagos State, former Vice President Atiku
Abubakar, Chief Olusegun Osoba and Sen. Danjuma Goje, who had all
attended the NEC meeting, were also present
