Some members of the dissolved national working committee(NWC) of the ruling All Progressive Congress(APC) have revealed that they are currently strategizing and consulting on how to assemble a team of lawyers to challenge the dissolution.

This is despite warning from president Muhammadu Buhari that there would be dire consequences for any member who chooses to ignore the party’s directives.

The dissolution was pronounced during a national executive committee (NEC) meeting of the party which had Buhari in attendance on Thursday.

The NEC meeting was convened by Victor Giadom, former deputy national secretary of the party, who had announced himself as acting chairman before the dissolution of the NWC.

In a statement on Thursday, 18 members of the former NWC said Giadom did not have the authority to call for a NEC meeting.

They said article 25(B) of the party’s constitution provides that only the chairman or the NWC has prerogative to call for a NEC meeting.

They argued that the party’s constitution makes it compulsory that a minimum of a 14-day notice is given for quarterly meetings and seven days for emergency NEC meetings.

“We note that chief Victor Giadom had convened and conducted a virtual meeting purportedly to be a NEC meeting of our party wherein certain far reaching decisions were purportedly reached,” the statement read.

“While the NWC is studying the unfolding drama, it will be consulting with stakeholders and a team of lawyers on the next line of action.”

Some of those who signed the statement are; Hilliard Eta, Waziri Bulama and Lanre Issa-Onilu.

The leadership crisis in the party began after the appeal court upheld the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as APC national chairman.

    Fashola: If We Keep Our Promises, APC Will Retain Power In 2023Babatunde Fashola

Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola has expressed optimism that Nigerians will still vote the All Progressives Congress (APC) back to power in 2023.

Fashola, however, added that the only thing that can make Nigerians not to vote for the APC is if the party fails to fulfill its campaign promises to them.

The Minister made this remark while speaking with journalists on Monday in Abuja.

He noted that even if the promises are not 100% fulfilled but the citizens see signs of commitment and progress, other parties should forget about displacing APC in 2023.

The former Lagos State Governor added that opposition parties are not doing better than the APC, hence should not expect Nigerians to vote for them come 2023.

He said: “Some governors have joined us, from where we think we could not get voters before. To retain power in 2023, certainly if we keep our promises, people will vote for us. It is that simple, that is politics,” the former Lagos governor said.

“If you do what you say you will do, even if you don’t do hundred percent and they see that you are making progress, they will even want you to finish what you started.”
