APC Crises: Buhari shelves NWC meeting


President Muhammadu Buhari has shelved the National Working Committee meeting scheduled for Tuesday, in Abuja.

Governor Atiku Bagudu, Chairman of the APC Governors’ Forum announced the postponement after leading the All Progressives Governors to meet with President Buhari.

The meeting was convened to address the crises rocking the party by President Muhammadu Buhari

The decision came after the Appeal Court of Abuja Division adjourned the appeal filed by the suspended National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, on Monday, without a new date or any reason for the adjournment.

The meeting with the President lasted for less than thirty minutes

The appellate court, which announced through one of the registrars that the court would no longer sit in the appeal, did not offer any reason for the sudden change of mind, especially when the date had already been slated for hearing of the suit filed by Oshiomhole challenging his suspension as the National Chairman of the party.

The suspended APC chief along with his legal team comprising Damian Dodo (SAN), Wole Olanipekun (SAN) and sympathizers had stormed the court as early as 8am for the case slated for 9am

Already, the party is thorn along several contending forces, with 2023 in focus.
