Oyegun Tenure Extension: Buhari Is On His Own- APC

LAGOS MARCH 27TH (NEWSRANGERS)-The All Progressives Congress (APC) has disowned President Muhammadu Buhari over his call for the annulment of Chief John Oyegun’s tenure extension as National Chairman of the party.
President Buhari, it would be recalled, had advised the ruling APC to nullify the extension of tenure for the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party.

“On my own part, I have taken some time to review and seek advice on the resolution and what I have found is that it contravenes our party constitution and the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” the president had said at the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the party that held on Tuesday.
But speaking to journalists after the NEC meeting, National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Abdullahi Bolaji, said the president was entitled to his opinion.
“You know that any issue that goes to court is sub-judicial. Then, that also presented its own complications so the NEC decided to set up a small team that will advise the party on the way forward,” he said.
“There is a technical committee that is looking at it.
“At the moment, there is no decision taken. So, the position of NEC still stands from the last meeting. That position may change tomorrow but as it is today, that is the position of NEC,” said Bolaji.
