APC NWC To Meet With Governors


There will be a meeting between the National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Progressive Governors’ Forum (PGF) today, July 19.

The meeting is coming a few days after the party’s National Chairman, Adamu Abdullahi, and National Secretary, Iyiola Omisore, resigned.

Following their resignation, Abubakar Kyari became the Acting National Chairman, while Festus Fuanter will act as the National Secretary.

It was gathered that the APC leadership had resolved to meet with critical stakeholders to seek their input in setting a new direction ahead of the postponed National Caucus and National Executive Committee (NEC) meetings of the party.

According to The Nation, today’s meeting is tentatively billed for the NWC Hall of the Muhammadu Buhari House – the APC National headquarters in Abuja.

A member of the NWC who confirmed the meeting in confidence said, “Today’s meeting with the governors is part of our plans to fully engage various segments and critical stakeholders of the party for their inputs in fashioning the way forward.

“I can tell you that the meeting is to hold later today (Wednesday). The decision to that was taken on Monday, and the acting National Chairman is to drive the consultation with the leadership of the Progressive Governors’ Forum (PGF) for the meeting.”

When asked if the new leadership of the NWC has met with President Tinubu, our source simply said, “I am not aware they have met with the President. I think it is still being worked out. Remember, the President returned from Kenya on Monday evening. I am sure the acting Chairman is on top of that, and we are sure he will inform the committee as soon as he meets with the President.”

A source in the party’s secretariat who has access to the workings of the NWC said that the outcome of today’s meeting with the governors elected on the platform of APC would be part of the issues the new leadership of the NWC will be taking to the President

“With the postponement of the National Caucus and NEC meetings, NWC resolved to get the understanding of all stakeholders before the meetings are held. They are also striving to be on the same page with every organ of the party for a rancour-free NEC meeting where critical decisions on the future of the party are expected to be taken.

“It is after today’s meeting with the governors that the new leadership of NWC will be meeting with the President,” the source disclosed.
