The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Yekini Nabena, has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to convene a National Executive Committee meeting to address the party’s leadership crisis.
Nabena, who said this in an interview with the press in Abuja on Saturday, stated that the President’s position as the leader of the ruling party puts him in good stead to call every member of the party to order.
He said, “I call on our dear President to accede to the request by a majority of well-meaning party members and leaders and convene an emergency NEC meeting to address the leadership crisis and deliberate on consolidating the APC’s control of Edo and Ondo States ahead of the forthcoming governorship elections.”
He said that Victor Giadom, who was parading himself as the party’s acting National Chairman, was acting out a script of certain individuals who didn’t wish the APC well.
Nabena added, “At least four people are laying claim to the chairmanship of the APC following the court-ordered suspension of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
“All manner of Court cases and orders are flying around contesting party decisions and National Working Committee positions. Factions are festering at the national level and many states. The APC is clearly at a tipping point.”
