The National Working Committee of the ruling All Progressives Congress has scheduled a fresh meeting for Tuesday, March 17.
Premium Times reports that the meeting which is planned to hold at the party's national secretariat in Abuja will be presided by the party's national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.
The announcement came just hours after the party indefinitely suspended is National Executive Committee meeting after the intervention of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Recall that Oshiomhole has regained the leadership of the party following the ruling of the Court of Appeal on Monday.
The appeal court stayed the execution of the March 4, order of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) high court restraining the national chairman of the All Progressives Party (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, from further acting in that capacity.
The APC, in a statement issued by the party’s spokesperson, Lanre Issa-Onilu, on Monday night enjoined all members of the NWC to attend the meeting.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the crisis biting hard on APC hit the crescendo as a move by the appeal court to hear the verdict challenging Oshimhole was put off on Monday, March 16.
It was reported that Oshiomhole and his loyalists were reported to be at the court premises since 8 am on Monday, March 16, to know his fate but the panel to preside on the judgement led by Justice Stephen Adah rose up minutes after beginning the hearing.
The panel said another jury will be constituted to hear Oshiomole’s appeal on a day which will be communicated to the parties involved.
In another report, a former Ekiti state governor, Segun Oni, insisted on leaving the ruling party.
He alleged that his followers and supporters are not well treated in the scheme of things in the party.
Going further, Oni said he was not accorded his rightful position and respect as a former APC deputy national chairman.
He also faulted the way and manner he was suspended from the party's leadership.
Oni said he would not be pulling out of the party until the second half of the year after he must have had consulted widely with some leaders within the APC, adding, however, that “we have taken the final decision to leave the party.
