BY OUR REPORTERS—-The All Progressives Congress, APC in Lagos State has frowned at the extension of the tenure of the Chief John Odigie-Oyegun led National Working Committee, NWC and all other executives of the party.
The state caucus of the APC reached the resolution at the end of a meeting on yesterday at the State House, Marina affirming that the extension was against the provisions of the constitution of the party.
The resolution of the party leaders at the end of the meeting are: “We have taken reports of the state APC chairman in respect of the NEC meeting held in Abuja. We have also had the privilege of receiving great reports from our leader from the reconciliation committee, he said.
“We have considered the issue of extension of tenure and we are of the firm belief that the decision is a breach of the constitution of our party and of the country. We are against the elongation of tenure.
“We shall continue to make our decision known to the party and to the president”. The tenure of Oyegun and its executives is due to expire in June this year.
With a year to the presidential elections the ruling APC Party is in a world of trouble. And the feud between former governor of Lagos state, Ahmed Bola Tinubu and party chairman John Oyegun may be merely a preview of worse to come.
Both major parties in Nigeria are in crisis, and I believe the reason is that the ground has shifted beneath them in ways they do not understand, said a Nigerian expert in Washington.
“Until the contours of the new political landscape become clear and the parties reshape themselves accordingly, I fear that chaos and turmoil will reign as the new normal.”
