Commotion continues in APC as NWC rejects Buhari’s position, vows to boycott NEC meeting
Political drama characterizing the All Progressives Congress has continued as the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party have rejected the endorsement of Chief Victor Giadom by President Muhammadu Buhari as the acting National Chairman of the party.
It would be recalled that the President through a statement by Garba Shehu, his media assistant on Wednesday backed the embattled Deputy National Secretary as the acting National Chairman, adding he would attend the APC National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting convened by Mr Giadom because “the law is on the side of Victor Giadom as Acting National Chairman.”
But the NWC after a meeting on Wednesday night released a statement that it will not be attending the NEC meeting, stating the Buhari may have been ill-advised or blackmailed into supporting Mr Giadom.
This statement was signed by Hilliard Eta and Waziri Bulama as acting national chairman and acting national secretary respectively.
