The crisis in the ruling All Progressives Congress seems to be coming to a climax as its National Working Committee has dissolved.
The decision was reached at the National Executive Council meeting held on Thursday.
Bashir Ahmad, an aide to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), tweeted, “Following the recommendation of President Muhammadu Buhari, the National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been dissolved.”
NRM also gathered that Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni, has been inaugurated to head the APC caretaker committee and chairman extraordinary convention.
The decision was taken at the ongoing meeting of the party’s National Executive Committee based on the recommendation of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Buhari’s new media aide, Bashir Ahmad, disclosed this on his Twitter handle.
He wrote, “Following the recommendation of President Muhammadu Buhari, the National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress has been dissolved.”
The problem in the APC NWC came to a head-on Tuesday last week when the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja upheld the suspension of the party’s National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, by the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory.
At an emergency meeting on the evening of the same day, 17 members of the NWC loyal to Oshiomhole, appointed a former governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, as acting chairman.
Giadom, in a counter move, together with two other NWC members, addressed a press conference on June 17, when he declared himself as the acting chairman. He backed his action with the judgment of the FCT high court, which in March gave him the go-ahead to be the acting national chairman.
Despite his suspension by two Port Harcourt courts and his replacement as the deputy national secretary, Giadom on Tuesday issued a notice of the APC NEC meeting, which would hold today (Thursday).
But the Ajimobi-led NWC on Tuesday said having been suspended from the NWC, Giadom was not qualified to convene the NEC meeting.
