A lot of dramatic development and reactions have trailed the recent dissolution of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Just one day after the committee was dissolved by the ruling party's National Executive Council (NEC), one of its top members, precisely the national publicity secretary, Malam Lanre Issa-Onilu, has expressed his support for the creation of the new caretaker committee.

Added to this, Issa-Onilu has called on aggrieved members of the defunct organ of the APC to throw their weight behind Governor Mai Mala Buni, the chairman of the new committee set up in place of the NWC.

Part of Issa-Onilu's statement about this read: “It was a privilege to have the opportunity to serve under the governing party of a government led by President Buhari.

“However, by this statement, I am speaking in my personal capacity and not for anyone or group.

“I have reflected on the events of the past few days and the outcome of Thursday’s NEC meeting and as a party man, I declare my support for the actions taken by Mr President."

The former NWC spokesman is believed to belong to the camp of Adams Oshiomhole alongside some other members of the party what have misgivings about the NEC's decision to dissolve the organ.

Giadom had prided himself the apple-eye of the ruling party's top echelon after imposing himself as the national chairman despite apparent insistence by the Adams Ohiomhole-led national working committee members.

After receiving the backing of President Muhammadu Buhari to summon APC meeting, little did Giadom know that he was digging his own political grave.
