The All Progressives Congress (APC) has fixed Thursday, March 17 for an emergency national executive committee (NEC) meeting.
This is despite a threat by Yekini Nabena, the party’s former deputy national publicity secretary and loyalist of ousted chairman of the APC national caretaker committee, Yobe Governor Mai Mala Buni.
The NEC members are expected to discuss the convention scheduled for March 26 and other party-related issues.
The virtual NEC meeting will be held at 11:00 am.
In a notice seen by The Cornet, Abubakar Sani Bello, acting APC chairman, and eight other members of the caretaker committee hinged the call for the NEC meeting on article 25 B (I and II) of the party’s constitution.
“Pursuant to Article 25B (i and ii) of the Party Constitution, and by the power vested on the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) via the NEC resolution of 8th December, 2020, the CECPC of the party at its 23rd meeting of 8th March, 2022, hereby calls for the meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of our great Party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) to consider matters pertaining to the national convention, governance of the party and any other relevant business of the party,” the notice reads.
“All members of the NEC are by this invitation to take notice of the meeting in accordance with article 12.3.”
The Cornet had reported Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai saying that Buni and some persons had conspired to scuttle the national convention scheduled for March 26.
