APC cancels NEC meeting scheduled for today Tuesday

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has called off the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting earlier scheduled for today, Tuesday.

The called off of the meeting is believed to be based on the intervention of President Muhammadu Buhari who had earlier mate with the APC governors at the State House in Abuja on Monday.

The postponement was announced Monday by the Chairman of APC Governors Forum and Kebbi State Governor, Atiku Bagudu, while briefing State House correspondents after he led APC governors to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari in his office.

The meeting was expected to decide the fate of party chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, after an Abuja high court directed him to stop parading himself as the chairman of the ruling party.

A court of similar jurisdiction in Kano had also issued a counter directive asking Mr Oshiomhole to continue serving as chairman of the party.

Mr Oshiomhole approached the Court of Appeal to challenge the Abuja court’s ruling.

Recalled that the media reported how the appeal court earlier on Monday suspended the case indefinitely.
