President Muhammdau Buhari, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), John Odigie-Oyegun and other top members of the party will soon know their fate as the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) Technical Committee on Friday submitted its report on tenure of party executives.
Oyegun had on Tuesday set up the panel to examine President Buhari’s position.
Recall that Buhari had opposed the extension of tenure for the executive committee of the party at the national and state levels.
DAILY POST reported that the committee chairman was Governor of Plateau State, Barr. Simon Lalong.
Other members of the 10-member Technical Committee were: the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Barr. Boss Mustapha; Governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi; Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai; Governor of Ondo State, Olurotimi Akeredolu, SAN; Senator Ben Uwajumogu; Hon. Kabiru Ajana; Barr. Elisha Kurah, SAN; Barr. C.J.N. Dakas, SAN and the APC National Legal Adviser, Dr. Muiz Banire, SAN (Member/Secretary).
However, the APC had stated that the tenure extension controversy rocking the party will be resolved.
National Publicity Secretary, Malam Bolaji Abdulahi, gave the assurance in a chat with newsmen on Wednesday.
“It is left for the NEC to decide, and if the committee recommends that the position of NEC should be maintained, then there will be no need for an elective convention”, he said.
“Then, the president and those who are concerned that the decision we have taken is correct or not, will have more confidence in the position of the party,’’ he added.
The APC spokesman, however, said that if the technical committee recommended that congresses should be held, the party´s NEC would consider that.
