APC to get new chairman by November


The Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee of the ruling All Progressives Congress is likely to hold the party’s national convention in November.

Also, the party will be getting a new national chairman and new members of the National Working Committee, while ward, local government and state congresses would take place before the convention.

The National Executive Committee of the party on June 25 dissolved the NWC.

Others members of the party at the meeting were Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo; Senate President, Ahmed Lawan; Speaker, House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, member state governors of the party and other stakeholders.

Prior to the NEC meeting, the party hadding been in an imbroglio, there were numerous court cases and different persons were claiming to be leaders of the party after the Court of Appeal upheld the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as the National Chairman.

The National Leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, said one would need a spreadsheet to keep tab of the numerous court cases concerning the party. The leadership crisis had led to the dissolution of the NWC by the NEC.

The next step the NEC took was to set up the caretaker committee, with members from the different geopolitical zones, to handle the workings of the party and hold a national convention. The committee is headed by the governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, who at one time served as the national secretary of the party.

Other members are the Governor of Osun State, Adegboyega Oyetola; Governor Sani Bello of Niger State; Prof Tahir Mamman; Ken Nnamani; Dr James Lalu; David Lyon; Akinyemi Olaide; Stella Okorete; James Lalu; Ismail Ahmed; Abba Ari, Senator Abubakar Yusuf and Senator Akpan Udoedehe, who serves as the party secretary.

The newly formed caretaker committee, with its members from the six geopolitical zones, has made the decision to hold it’s National Convention in November, so members can elect key party members.

A high ranking member of NEC, who spoke on the condition of anonymity said, “Unless something changes, a new national chairman and members of the National Working Committee will emerge in November. Right now, what is paramount is the need for our party to secure Edo and Ondo states and stop the haemorrhage within.”
