All Progressives Congress, APC, members of the pro-Adams Oshiomole National Working Committee, NWC, have resolved to take legal action over the resolution of the National Executive Committee, NEC, of the party, to dissolve the National Leadership of the party,
The NEC had during an emergency virtual meeting, headed by President Muhammadu Buhari, resolved among other things, to dissolve the National Leadership of the party, setting up a Caretaker Committee headed by the former National Secretary and Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni.
However, reacting to the development, a member of the pro-Oshiomhole NWC said that arrangements have been concluded to seek legal redress, which is against the President’s other directive, that parties should withdraw all litigation and refrain from instituting any further litigation.
Faulting the NEC’s decision, the NWC member insisted that there is no provision of a Caretaker Committee in the constitution of the ruling party, insisting that they have many grounds of infractions committed by the resolutions of the NEC.
“We will soon issue statement, but we have resolved to head to court for the legal interpretations of the decision of the NEC, especially as it concerns our dissolution. Yes, we know that Oshiomhole has his faults, but with all the positive contributions he has made to reposition the party, will he not have been given the honours of telling him to resign?” he queried.
Meanwhile, the APC Caretaker Committee Chairman has resolved to formally takeover the running of the ruling party on Thursday afternoon, shortly after the setting up of the Committee, with no fewer than 5 other Progressive Governors.
Speaking to Newsmen at the National Secretariat of the party, he paid tribute to the dissolved National Working Committee, for the contributions made in the development of the party, stressing that, with the decision, they have no role to play in the running of the party any longer.
He arrived the National Secretariat of the APC, earlier today, with the Governors of Kano, Abdullahi Ganduje; Kaduna, Nasir El-Rufai; Kogi, Yahaya Bello; Gombe, Inua Yahaya; among others.
