Tinubu, Aregbesola absent at APC caucus meeting

The national caucus meeting of the All Progressives Congress (APC) held on Monday night, March 26.

The meeting was attended by the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, and past state governors of APC, members of the National Assembly, Secretary to the Government of the Federation , Boss Mustapha and other cabinet ministers.

Legit.ng gathered that two chieftains of the party, a former Lagos state governor, Bola Tinubu, and ex-Osun governor Bisi Akande as well as Governors Rauf Aregbesola of Osun and Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara were absent at the meeting.

Tinubu is heading a presidential reconciliation committee set up to reconcile aggrieved party members across the country.

Recall that a similar caucus meeting was held on February 26. It was at this meeting the decision to extend the tenure of both the national and state officials was taken.

This decision has been rejected and criticised by some members of the party. Some members of the APC had dragged the national chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, to court over what they described as “illegal tenure elongation’’.

Others alleged that Odigie-Oyegun had been running the accounts of the party without recourse to majority of national officers of the party.

Meanwhile, the national chairman of the APC has said that the meeting of the party’s national caucus discussed more serious issues but not about his removal from office.

He dismissed the insinuation that the members of the national caucus deliberated on a court case instituted against him by some aggrieved members of the party.

He said the meeting chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, discussed the party’s report on true federalism.
