The fate of the Ondo state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, a former governor of Ogun state, Ibikunle Amosun, and Senator Rochas Okorocha, may be decided today, Friday, November 22, during the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Nation reports that the duo were suspended over alleged anti-party activities during the 2019 general elections in their various states.
Legit.ng gathered that there was a pressure on NEC members on the night of Thursday, November 21, to lift the suspension on key leaders in order to keep a united APC family.
It was also learnt that the NEC meeting would discuss the outcome of the presidential election tribunal and the governorship poll results in Bayelsa and Kogi states.
According to the report, although the crisis in Edo state chapter of APC is not slated for consideration, there were indications that some members of the committee might raise the issue.
The NWC had already set up a five-man fact-finding committee headed by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje on the crisis of confidence among APC stakeholders in Edo state.
Also, in the team are Katsina state governor, Aminu Masari; former governor of Oyo state, Abiola Ajimobi; former governor of Borno state, Senator Kashim Shettima and Hon. Ahmed Wadada as the secretary.
Some items on the agenda, according to the report, included the 2020 budget of APC; the building of a new secretariat for the party and the establishment of the progressives institute to train future members and leaders on party politics.
The newspaper noted that a source, who spoke in confidence, said the NEC would hold a “frank session” on some issues.
“We will review the outcome of the presidential election; the challenges and triumphs at the presidential election tribunal and the Supreme Court; and the governorship poll results in Bayelsa and Kogi states.
“We lost about four to five states during the February general elections but with the results of the governorship elections in Bayelsa and Kogi states, it appears things are getting better for APC," the source said.
