The Crisis in the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC seems far from over as a faction of the party loyal to suspended national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole and the National Working Committee of the party, NWC has declined to attend a virtual National Executive Committee meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday.
It will be recalled that former national secretary and factional acting national chairman, Victor Giadom was recognized by President Buhari, who also accepted to attend the meeting which will be held virtually.
POLITICS NIGERIA gathered that this was contained in a statement signed by the factional acting national chairman of the party, Hilliard Eta and the acting national secretary, Waziri Bulama.
The statement read in part; “We wish to unequivocally state that members of the NWC believe that the President was offered wrong advice or blackmailed into lending his weighty office to the illegality of the NEC meeting purportedly convened by one Victor Giadom on June 25, 2020.”
“We hereby respectfully implore Mr President to kindly avail himself with facts of the matter regarding the impasse presently experienced by the Party so as to guide him in his assessment of the matter because we are sure that the President if properly advised, would come to the conclusion that the meeting convened by Victor Giadom bothers on illegality and criminality.”
“The NWC regrets to turn down the invitation to the illegal and unconstitutional NEC convened by Victor Giadom. We believe that attending such a meeting will amount to embracing illegalities and turning a blind eye to the infractions on the Constitution of our great party,” he disclosed.
