by on May 25, 2017
Governors of the All Progressives Con­gress (APC) says the will meet the Acting Presi­dent, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, to agree on a date for the party’s National Executive Council (NEC) and conven­tion, which has been sever­ally postponed due to lack of fund and the absence of the ailing President Muham­madu Buhari.
The APC National Work­ing Committee (NWC) ,it was gathered, has continued to postpone the date for the NEC meeting due to the ill health of the President, who must be present at the meet­ing.
But the APC governors, who met with the John Od­igie-Oyegun-led NWC on Tuesday in Abuja agreed that the NEC meeting should go on as required by the party’s constitution, despite the ab­sence of the President, who has been a in London on medical vacation.
Briefing journalists after the combined meeting at the APC National Secretariat, the Plateau state Governor, Simon Lalong, said that the NEC meeting and conven­tion had been delayed due the President’s I’ll health, noting that it is compulsory that the President attends the NEC meeting, which will eventually determine the date for the party’s con­vention.
Lalong said that the gov­ernors and the NWC agreed at the meeting that the NEC meeting must be held within the shortest possible time, despite Buhari’s absence.
The governor stated that the parley also reviewed the activities of the APC admin­istration, and concluded that it had done well in the last two years.
“We ended a very suc­cessful meeting in continua­tion of our agreement at the last meeting that we will be meeting every month with the party’s leadership. today is one of those meeting and we will have another one next month.
“The purpose of the meet­ing was to review our party’s activities in the various states where we have APC govern­ment for the past two years. And we came to the conclu­sion that so far, we have done very well.
