Meanwhile, the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has cancelled the planned emergency meeting of its National Executive Committee, NEC.
National Secretary of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention
Planning Committee, CECPC, Senator John Akpanudoedehe, announced
this in a statement on Wednesday.
He explained that the meeting, earlier scheduled to hold on Thursday,
was cancelled on the directive of the National Chairman of the CECPC,
Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State.
This follows the instruction by President Muhammadu Buhari to
Governor Buni to take over the affairs of the ruling party when they met
in the United Kingdom.
President Buhari gave the directive as part of his intervention in the
party’s leadership crisis and said the party could not change the
leadership of the CECPC without infringing on the time limit set by
Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
