Buhari Urges APC NEC To Reverse Tenure Elongation For Oyegun, Others


President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday urged the National Executive Committee of the ruling party, All Progressives Congress, APC, to reverse its decision granting a tenure extension to party chairman, John Oyegun and other executives at all levels.

Mr. Buhari made the plea in his opening remarks at the ongoing NEC Meeting of the party in Abuja.

He said he had received legal advice from the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice that the tenure extension was at variance with the party’s constitution as well as the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The president therefore asked the party’s NEC to avoid taking decisions capable of leading the party into playing into the hands of the opposition.
