President Muhammadu Buhari (left) with the disgraced Comrade Adams Oshiomhole
The drama of and crisis in the All Progressive Congress (APC) party appears to be evolving following the sacking of the Comrade Adams Oshiomhole-led National Working Committee (NWC) as 18 members of the APC’s sacked NWC members that are loyal to the party’s sacked National Chairman, insisted that the APC National Executive Committee meeting attended by the President, Muhammadu Buhari, was illegal.
The NWC members, who said this in a statement signed by its acting National Chairman, Hillard Eta, and the acting National Secretary, Waziri Bulama. Following that, they said they were consulting their lawyers and other stakeholders on the dissolution of the NWC and other decisions taken at the NEC meeting, which was chaired by President Buhari on Thursday.
Their grouse was that the NEC meeting was illegally convened by the suspended Deputy National Secretary of the party, Victor Giadom. A few hours after the NWC was dissolved at the instance of Buhari, the 18 members dared the President and others at the NEC meeting by issuing a statement where they referred to themselves as officials of the party.
