Former National Deputy Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Nigeria’s ruling party, Victor Giadom, says the only way to resolve APC crisis is a convocation of National Executive Council (NEC).
Naija News reports that the Factional APC Acting Chairman made this comment while addressing journalists at the National Secretariat of the party in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
The embattled APC leader said it was high time the ruling party was handed over to higher organ since the lingering issues are beyond the National Working Committee (NWC).
Asked what will be the way forward for the party, Gaidom said: “I have always insisted at the beginning of this crisis that the only way to resolve this issue is to surrender this party to a higher organ which is the best.
“And I am still insisting that the only way to get ourselves out of this mess is to convoke a NEC meeting. That is the only route out, I have the feeling that there is no other route to have peace and justice in this party except through a NEC meeting that has been my decision.
“There has to be a NEC meeting. NEC is the higher organ above the NWC, I do not see why they are afraid. You have to surrender this organ so that the right would be done and every other decision that has been taken by the leadership would be ratified by NEC.
“So if we do not have NEC meeting, it would be difficult to resolve this crisis,” he insisted.
