Buhari Meets Governors Over APC Crisis

ADEOLA AJAYI, EKITI

The confused and unsettled party continue to look out to get from the fence despite a new acting National chairman.

The President of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari and some governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) are in a meeting over the leadership crisis rocking the ruling party, while the meeting being held at the presidential villa in Abuja.

Atiku Bagudu, Kebbi governor and chairman of the Progressives Governors’ Forum; Simon Lalong, Plateau governor and chairman of the northern governors forum; and Abubakar Badaru are some of those at the meeting.

The crises began to sky rocket after the scenario between Adams Oshiomhole and Edo state Governor Goodwin Obaski, and the suspension of
Adams Oshiomhole.

The problem continue to strike after the departure of the Obaseki to tb opposition party PDP.

The court of appeal had upheld a decision of a lower court that ordered the suspension of Oshiomhole.

The court gave the order on the basis that Oshiomhole had been suspended by the APC in his ward since last year.

The suspension is a fall out from a disagreement he had with Godwin Obaseki, Edo governor.

While Abiola Ajimobi, former Oyo governor, was named as the acting chairman, Victor Giadom has since said he is in charge of the party.

Later, Hilliard Eta, APC vice-chairman south-south, was named by some members of the national working committee (NWC) to act on behalf of Ajimobi who has been “unavoidably absent”.
