Crisis Looms In APC Over Mode of Primary Elections

 National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress, APC has raised alarm over alleged plans by some of its members to hold a meeting with a view to faulting the party’s National Working Committee, NWC and National Executive Committee, NEC decisions on mode of primary elections.

A statement issued and signed by the Acting National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mr. Yekini Nabena said the attention of the party was drawn to an illegal meeting scheduled to hold on Sunday at Transcorp Hilton hotel in Abuja by some members of the Party organs, with a view to fault the decisions made as regards the mode of the Party’s primary elections.

“We want to state clearly that the meeting which has been fixed for 2pm is illegal and an attempt to puncture the sincere efforts being made by the Comrade Adams Oshiomhole-led NWC to reposition our Party ahead the 2019 General Elections and to ensure unity, equity and justice in the Party.

The outcome of such meeting which is already known will be a nullity and we admonish our members to disregard such meetings in the interest of the Party. It is illegal to call such meetings outside the purview of the constituted authority.”Mr Yekini declared.

Adding that “the identities of those plotting such meetings have been identified and unless they desist from such they will be dealt with in line with the Party’s Constitution at the appropriate time.

The NWC will resist any attempt to disrupt the current peace and harmony prevailing in our great Party after the exit of some members of our Party.

We urge any member who is not satisfied with the decisions of the Party to utillize channels provided by the Party’s constitution to air their views.”

The APC maintained that “we remain focused in delivering good governance to Nigerians and above all ensuring the victory for our Party come 2019 and we will not be intimidated by the antics of a few in ensuring successes for our Party.”
