Reading Time: < 1 minute

President Muhammadu Buhari has gained an upper hand in the ongoing crisis within the All Progressives Congress, APC over the reversal of the Oyegun-led NWC tenure elongation.

All 24 governors have agreed with president Buhari after a meeting on Wednesday that the party’s constitution should be adhered to in respect to electing a new NWC.

Governor of Zamfara state, Abdulaziz Yari revealed this to Statehouse correspondents after the meeting today. He said;

“We consulted and all the 24 governors of the APC are in the same page with Mr. President that we are going to respect our party constitution, we are going to respect the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. So, therefore, we collectively agreed that we will have congresses at all levels – local, state and national.”

It will be recalled that President Buhari had at the party’s National Executive Committee’s meeting last week declared as illegal, a proposal for the extension of the tenure of the John Odigie-Oyegun-led NWC of the party, adding that it violated the party’s constitution.
