Following its victory in the governorship election in Bayelsa and Kogi states, the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has proposed Friday, November 22, as the date for its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting.
According to a source in the APC national secretariat in Abuja, the party’s national caucus will meet on Thursday, November 21, while the NEC might be held on Friday, The Nation reports.
However, the same source who disclosed the news to journalists said that the date is still tentative as the leadership of the ruling party is trying to avoid the absence of President Muhammadu Buhari at the meeting.
The source said: “The president is supposed to chair the NEC, but from the feelers we have, for now, he might not be available on Friday, so the meeting might have to be shifted. However, the National Caucus meeting will be held on Thursday.”
This was attested to by the APC's national publicity secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, who said that Friday is still a tentative date for the said NEC meeting.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that the national chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, had been advised to convene a NEC meeting to resolve some burning issues within the party ahead of the governorship elections holding on Saturday, November 16, in Bayelsa and Kogi states.
The plea was made on Tuesday, November 12, by the director-general of the Progressives Governors' Forum (PGF), Salihu Lukman.
