AddAPC CRISIS: PRES. BUHARI HANDS DOWN MARCHING ORDERS TO OSHIOMHOLE, NWC. ….charges NWC to resolve crisis within the party or resign

8 August, 2019 Politics

Apparently dissatisfied with the preponderance of crisis across the various state chapters of the ruling party, the President of Nigeria and the National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), President Muhammadu Buhari has handed down a 21 days ultimatum to the National Chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party to resolve all lingering issues across all the chapters of the party in the country or tender their resignation.

This according to reliable sources within the presidency was the reason why an impromptu meeting of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party was summoned for 12 noon today at the National Secretariat of the party.

It was gathered that the President was no longer comfortable with the numerous crisis within the party especially with the legislative logjam in Edo State and the forthcoming elections in Kogi State and other intra party issues which is threatening to tear the internal fabrics of the party across the country.

In a private conversation with some leaders of the party including Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El Rufai some days ago, the President was said to have expressed worries over the way the party is being run and the way the NWC has been handling issues within the party and expressed his frustrations that instead of the National leadership of the party under the stewardship of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole to suggest and recommend people oriented policies and programmes in line with the next level agenda of his administration, it has instead chosen to be embroiled in one form of crisis to another and shared the same sentiment as Senator Rochas Okorocha who described the crisis bedeviling the party as a by product of leadership failure on the part of the party national chairman and his NWC.

He also stated that the prevailing crisis in Oshiomhole’s home state Edo, must be nipped in the bud as he can’t afford to lose the only APC controlled state in the South South geo political zone to the opposition as well as Kogi state which is gearing up for its governorship election in November.

It was however resolved that an emergency meeting of the party leadership and the National Working Committee of the party be convened to issue a stern warning to the National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and members of the NWC to sit up or be booted out as the party seems to be derailing from its core principles due to various clandestine and overt personal interests which could cause a serious implosion within the party if not properly addressed.

As at press time, the meeting was still ongoing at the National secretariat of the party.
