Ajimobi-Led NWC to boycott Thursday's APC NEC Meeting

The Senator Abiola Ajimobi-led National Working Committee (NWC) of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that President Muhammadu Buhari was blackmailed or ill-advised into accepting to attend the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting slated for tomorrow.

The party’s National Vice Chairman, South-South, Hilliard Eta, said this in a statement on Wednesday signed the acting National Secretary, Arc. Waziri Bulama, after a meeting at the party’s national secretariat.

He added that the NWC will not be attending Thursday’s NEC meeting, describing it as illegal. The NWC members stated this on Wednesday night after a meeting at the national secretariat of the party.

The statement reads; “We wish to unequivocally state that members of the National Working Committee NWC believe that the President was offered wrong advice or blackmailed into lending his weighty office to the illegality of the National Executive Committee meeting purportedly convened by one Victor Giadom on 25th June, 2020.

“We hereby respectfully implore Mr. President to kindly avail himself with facts of the matter regarding the impasse presently experienced by the Party so as to guide him in his assessment of the matter because we are sure that the President if properly advised, would come to the conclusion that the meeting convened by Chief Victor Giadom bothers on illegality and criminality.

“The National Working Committee NWC regrets to turn down the invitation to the illegal and unconstitutional National Executive Committee NEC convened by Chief Victor Giadom. “We believe that attending such a meeting will amount to embracing illegalities and turning a blind eye to the infractions on the Constitution of our great Party”.
