The All Progressives Congress, APC, has scheduled to hold its next National Executive Council, NEC, meeting at the presidential villa.
The venue of the meeting was communicated in a letter made available to newsmen a few hours ago by the deputy national secretary of the party, Victor Giadom.
Gaidom in the letter notified the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Mahmood Yakubu that the party’s NEC meeting will hold on Thursday, June 25 at the villa at exact 10:00 am.
Usually, APC’s NEC meetings do hold at the national secretariat of the party, Naija News understands.
Parts of the letter reads; “Recall our earlier letter to you wherein we intimated you of the national executive committee meeting of our earlier scheduled for Tuesday, March 17th 2020. Unfortunately, that meeting was postponed,”
“However, this is to inform you of reconvening of the said meeting which is now billed to hold on Thursday, June 25th, 2020.”
“Venue: Presidential Villa; Time: 10 am; Date: Thursday, June 25th, 2020. While looking forward to your cooperation, please accept the renewed assurances of my highest regards.”
However, members of the national working committee, NWC, loyal to the former Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, has stated that Eta Hilliard, vice-chairman south-south, would act on behalf of the elected leader who is currently living on a life support machine after testing positive for COVID-19 a few days ago.
Naija News understands that the Nigeria ruling party has been embroiled in a leadership crisis following the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as the party’s national chairman by an appeal court order.
Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has filed a petition against Justice Emmanuel Obile of the Federal High Court, Port Harcourt, for stopping Governor Godwin Obaseki from participating in the party’s primary election.
