Buhari Asks APC NWC To Reverse Oyegun Tenure Extension

President Muhammadu Buhari has asked the national executive committee (NEC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to consider reversing the tenure extension of the party’s national working committee (NWC) led by John Oyegun, chairman of the party.

The president said this at the party’s headquarters in Abuja on Tuesday.

Buhari said the extension decided upon at the party’s NEC meeting on February 28 is against the constitution of the APC.

He said he wanted to avoid a legal battle that could jeopardise the party’s cohesion before the 2019 general election.

Bola Tinubu, national leader of the APC, and some party leaders had opposed the extension of the tenure of the NWC and state executives by one year.

Describing it as illegal, Murtala Nyako, former governor of Adamawa, had said: “If there is no convention in APC before the general election, the party may become a spectator instead of a participant.”
