APC Holds NEC Meeting October 31
The National Executive Committee meeting of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has been fixed for October 31.
The meeting is aimed at working out modalities for its national convention.
The party leadership is still drawing flak from some chieftains following its inability to hold the convention in April.
Several party leaders including Bola Tinubu, former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar and the Senate President, Bukola Saraki have voiced their frustrations about the way the party is being run.
But party leaders have attributed the delay in fixing a date for the convention to the health challenge of the President.
The October 31 meeting is to be preceded by the party’s National Caucus meeting on October 30.
The caucus meeting will to put together the agenda for the NEC meeting.
At the caucus meeting, the report of the Muiz Banire Constitution Review Committee will be presented by the John Odigie-Oyegun-led NWC.
The date for the forthcoming convention will also be fixed, even as the resolutions at the caucus meeting would be ratified at the October 31 NEC meeting.
The current outlook of the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT) is expected to change, with a plan to prune down the membership and rename the organ.
