APC May Convene NEC Meeting Over Primary Elections Crisis
The All Progressives Congress (APC) may be compelled to hold an emergency National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting early in November to address the issues arising from the primary elections.
It was gathered that those pushing for NEC meeting have been sending messages to party trying to convince them of the need to use the opportunity to review the outcome of the recently conducted primaries across the country.
It was also gathered that some powerful leaders in the party are plotting to take advantage of the meeting to determine the fate of the embattled National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.
The primary elections have generated much crisis with some governors and other party leaders openly calling for the removal of Oshiomhole as the National Chairman.
A top party leader, who confirmed the move to summon the NEC, said some elements are already lobbying for the replacement of Oshiomhole with “former governor of Cross River State, Clement Ebiri or any other moderate fellow”.
He said: “unless the current National Chairman is removed, the party might be heading for a defeat in 2019.
“Currently the NWC under Oshiomhole has breached the constitution, and I can tell you categorically that there is no leader in APC across the country that is happy with Oshiomhole”.
However, the party leader said that Oshiomhole’s loyalists are working hard to stop the meeting.
