NDDC: 12,128 Abandoned Projects Have Been Uncovered — Akpabio

The All Progressives Congress Presidential Support Committee has suspended its National Coordinator, Senator Godswill Akpabio.

Naija News gathered that Akpabio was suspended over what the group describes as poor leadership.

The committee, which is an umbrella body of President Buhari support groups, was mandated to galvanize support for President Buhari’s re-election in 2019.

Akpabio’s suspension was made known to newsmen on Saturday by the spokesperson of the group, Kailani Muhamad.

He stated that the National Executive Committee of the group decided to suspend Senator Akpabio because he abandoned the organisation after his ministerial appointment.

Senator Akpabio, a former Akwa Ibom state Governor, is the current Minister of Niger-Delta

He was appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari in July 2019.

Meanwhile, the ruling APC has reportedly extended the tenure of the Caretaker Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC).

The caretaker committee, led by Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State is understood to have been granted an extension to remain in office until it can conduct a national convention for the party.

Recall the Buni-led committee came on board in June 2020 after the dissolution of the Adams Oshiomhole led National Working Committee (NWC).

It got its tenure extended by six months in December 2020 during an emergency National Executive Committee (NEC) held at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

It is now understood that the APC leadership after briefing President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday at the Aso Rock Villa, agreed to grant another extension to the committee.
