Factional acting National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Victor Giadom, has stated that the turbulence rocking the party may linger unless it is handed over to a higher authority.
According to the recently suspended secretary, justice and peace can only be restored in the party with the intervention of the party’s National Executive Council, NEC intervened.
Giadom while speaking with newsmen in Abuja on Monday, June 22, noted that the situation at hand in the ruling party has gone beyond the party’s National Working Committee, NWC, hence the need to involve a superior organ to put off the rift.
“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,” said Giadom.
“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.”
He added, “There has to be an 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 a NEC meeting, it would be difficult to resolve this crisis.”
Naija News understands that crisis broke out in the APC camp following the suspension of its National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole by an Appeal Court.
