Buhari to attend APC’s NEC meeting

By Emmanuel Mogbede

Bigwigs of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), including President Muhammadu Buhari, would attend the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting on Tuesday.

Governors elected on APC platform, members of its Board of Trustee and National Working Committee (NWC) members are among others, also expected at the meeting.

“It is going to be a routine NEC meeting which is a final leg of the meeting that was held last month.

“If you recall after the NEC meeting last, month, I told you that two issues were outstanding and that members asked for more time to study those issues.

“These are the issues of constitutional amendment and the True Federalism committee report.

“These are the two key items on the agenda for tomorrow’s NEC meeting,“ Mr.Bolaji Abdullahi, the APC National Publicity Secretary told newsmen.

APC NEC at its meeting of Feb. 26, extended the tenure of the party`s National Working Committee (NEC) and other executive members across all levels by one year starting from June.

While Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, the APC National Chairman, said the decision was in good faith, some party members, who were not comfortable with it, took the party to court.

The APC Forum of non-National Working Committee (NWC), had however, said that members who took the party to court out of grievance without exhausting its internal mechanism should be disciplined.

The forum reaffirmed the position of the party’s NEC to extend the tenure of all its executives.

Meanwhile, security has been beefed at the national secretariat of the party in readiness of Tuesday’s meeting. (NAN)
