BEVERLY HILLS, November 13, (THEWILL) – Governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have called on the party’s National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, to convene a National Executive Council (NEC) meeting to resolve the party’s challenges or resign from the position.
In a statement signed by its Director-General, Mr. Salihu Lukman, in Abuja on Wednesday, the Forum said Oshiomhole should either respect the provision of the party constitution and convene a meeting to deliberate on the party’s challenges or resign from the position.
“Somehow, unfortunately, the National Executive Council (NEC) of the party, which is the organ vested with the statutory responsibility of responding to all these challenges appear to be suspended,” the statement read.
“The last time it met was August 2018. In its place, the National Working Committee (NWC), which is an administrative organ with the responsibility of implementing decisions of NEC and other higher organs seems to have usurped the powers of NEC.
“Sadly, even the NWC, as at today, is a shadow of itself, as it has lost many members either on accounts of appointment into government or controversial suspension.
“For instance, Otunba Niyi Adebayo, Deputy National Chairman (South) is today a Minister of the Federal Republic.
“Senator Lawal Shuaibu, Deputy National Chairman (North) is allegedly suspended. Alhaji Inuwa Abdulkadir, National Vice Chairman (North West) is similarly suspended.”
