The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will begin its meeting anytime from now in Abuja.
Coming against the backdrop of the leadership crisis rocking the party, the NEC of the ruling party will be meeting for the first time since winning the last presidential elections and winning in 22 out of 36 states of the federation.
The party, since taken over power on May 29, had been embroiled in crisis following the National Assembly leadership election on June 9, which saw Senator Bukola Saraki and Hon. Yakubu Dogara emerged as the leaders of the Red and Green chambers respectively against the party’s choice.
Every attempt by the national leadership of the party to resolve the crisis had met the brickwall which necessitated the NEC meeting.
Already, the National Chairman of the party, Chief John Oyegun, has arrived his office, waiting for other dignitaries and chieftains of the party who have the rights to attend.
President Muhammadu Buhari, Senate President Bukola Saraki, Speaker of the House of Representatives Yakubu Dogara and the 22 governors elected on the party’s platform are among the party officials expected to attend the event.
Meanwhile, the road leading to the party’s national secretariat, venue of the meeting, has been cordoned off by a combined team of Army, Police and the Department of Security Service,DSS.
The meeting, however, is expected to be stormy and decisive as matters confronting the party are so weighty, rending it immobile since it took over power.
