Share This

By Sadiq Umar – The National Executive Council (NEC) of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has extended the tenure of its National Chairman, John Odigie Oyegun, its National Working Committee (NWC) and other executives by one year, effective from June this year.

This decision was announced at the end of its NEC meeting in Abuja on Tuesday.

The NEC meeting had in attendance President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Oyegun and other party chieftains.

APC Governors, Ministers and top members of the ruling party were also at the meeting which held at the headquarters of the party in Abuja.

However, the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara were absent at the meeting.

Mr. Saraki was also absent Monday night when Mr. Buhari hosted the APC caucus at the presidential villa in Abuja.

Earlier on Monday, the Forum of APC State Chairmen, at its meeting ahead of the NEC meeting had “unanimously resolved” to propose a two-year tenure extension for Oyegun.

The state Chairmen said the extension of tenure for Oyegun and others became necessary in view of limited time the party has before the next general election.
