Buhari Set To Hold Emergency Meeting With 20 Top APC Leaders, Changes Venue Of Event

President Muhammadu Buhari, is billed to address the National Working Committee, NWC, of the All Progressives Congress, APC, on Wednesday.
The meeting will be the first official meeting between him and the NWC, after the 2019 general elections.
It was learnt that the meeting earlier planned for the APC National Secretariat, in Abuja, to address issues concerning the party’s performance in the elections, could be moved to the Aso Rock Villa.
The meeting, which will be presided over by the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, is also expected to review the lingering crisis in the party, and possible solutions to douse tension.
The  NWC has already placed the National Vice Chairman of the party, Inuwa Abdul-Kadir, on suspension, and recommended that to the National Executive Committee for ratification.
Abdul-Kadiri has since sued the party for alleged infringement of his rights and privileges.
A member of the NWC, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said: “The meeting is the first after the general elections, and we will discuss a lot of issues affecting the party. This is a meeting that holds once in a while, and we cannot let this opportunity slip by.”
It was gathered that Buhari would be briefed on the reports of the Committee on Anti-Party Activities, chaired by the Deputy National Chairman (South), Otunba Niyi Adebayo. Adebayo is one of the 43 Ministers-Designate.

The Committee was raised to probe party members accused of anti-party activities during the general elections.

The source said: “The meeting is not unusual, as it had taken place at the Villa in the past. It is because we scheduled it for the National Secretariat that it is now generating attention.”

When asked if members of the National Executive Committee, NEC, would be attendance, the source replied: “No, it is a meeting with the 20 members of the NWC, nothing more.”
