The meeting of the committee was held at at the presidential villa Abuja, with President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, and other party chiefs in attendance.
NEC, the highest decision-making body of the party, also expelled Ntufam Hilliard Eta, vice-chairman south-south, for failing to withdraw a suit he instituted against the caretaker committee.
It also directed new members of APC to be granted waivers so they can contest for elections without having to wait for two years which was done previously.
Mr. Buhari Buhari, in his opening remarks at the NEC meeting, appealed to party members at all levels to make sacrifices that will move the party forward.
