The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of being ill-advised over his decision to support Victor Giadom as the party’s National Chairman.
Consequently, the Committee has said it would not be attending the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting scheduled for Thursday.
In a statement signed on Wednesday by the embattled Acting National Chairman, Prince Hilliard Eta, and Acting National Secretary, Architect Waziri Bulama, the NWC said it believed that the President was wrongly advised or blackmailed into lending his weighty office to the illegality of the National Executive Committee meeting purportedly convened by Victor Giadom.
It implored the President to kindly avail himself with facts of the matter regarding the impasse presently rocking the party so as to guide him in his assessment of the matter.
The NWC said attending the NEC meeting would amount to embracing illegalities and turning a blind eye to the infractions on the Constitution of the party.
