The future of the Chief John Odigie-Oyegun-led National Working Committee, of the All Progressives Congress, APC, was set in uncertainty yesterday after President Muhammadu Buhari raised constitutional queries on the tenure extension plot for the party’s executives.
President Buhari’s assertions at a stormy closed-door session of the 5th National Executive Committee, NEC of the ruling party, compelled the setting up of a committee to review the motion adopted at the 4th NEC for the extension of the tenure of all executives of the party across all levels. Sources at the meeting said security operatives had to rush in to ensure order as tempers flared over the issue that has lately polarised party chieftains. The cloud over the party was further thickened by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, which slammed President Buhari for setting confusion in the party by interfering in its internal affairs of the party. The uncertainty in the party evolved after some party leaders led by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu opposed the extension of the tenure of the executives as recommended at the 4th NEC last month. The Tinubu camp had been overwhelmed by the camp of the governors who pushed for retention of the executives on the claim that doing so would avoid crisis ahead of the 2019 general election. Perhaps, comforted with the backing of the governors, Odigie-Oyegun had at the end of the National Caucus on Monday night, said talks about the disruption of the extension of his tenure had been set in history. So as the NEC got underway yesterday, the national chairman set the agenda of the meeting on two major issues, to wit, the review of the party’s constitution and deliberation on the report on true federalism. “We have two basic issues to conclude today. The first, of course, is the elaborate review of the party constitution, and then the second, the famous report, otherwise known as the report on true federalism which defines or interprets in clear terms the APC manifesto as it affects the future of this great nation. So, we have to get going, and I will yield the microphone to Mr. President for any statement he wishes to make”, Odigie-Oyegun had begun. However, as soon as the president had the floor, he deviated from the two issues slated for discussion.
