Members of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) were left in shock at the ongoing NEC meeting in Abuja after President Muhammadu Buhari, called for the cancellation of tenure extension for party officials.
Acccording to PREMIUM Times, while speaking shortly before the commencement of the NEC meeting on Tuesday, the President told a packed hall at the APC national secretariat to consider cancelling the tenure extension decision because “it is against the party constitution and the Nigerian constitution.”
President Buhari who presented the matter “for discussion” at the meeting, said he is having a change of heart because he doesn’t want the party’s activities to be faulted by any court of law.
It was gathered that the NEC members at the meeting were shocked because the issue of tenure extension was not in the agenda circulated to members, and was also not discussed at the national caucus meeting which held at the Presidential Villa Monday night.
Recall that the APC had in its NEC meeting on February 28, extended the tenure of members of National Working Committee (NWC) led by John Odigie-Oyegun by one year, which did not go down well with a national leader of the party, Bola Tinubu, who had been in conflict with Oyegun.
