APC NEC Stunned As Buhari Kicks Against Tenure Elongation For Oyegun

President Buhari rejects APC Chairman John Oyegun's Tenure Elongation

The plaintiff in the tenure elongation case against the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Wale Ahmed, yesterday hailed President Muhammadu Buhari for his objection to the "illegal" tenure extension.

While also agreeing that the proposed extension of tenure of the National Working Committee of APC was unconstitutional, Frank said he expects the party's national chairman and the NWC to take a cue on how to run a ruling party from PDP, as there is no crime in learning what one doesn't know.

Abdullahi, who appeared on a radio programme on Ray Power, said the committee was set up based on divided opinion on the position of Buhari.

Kekemeke who stated this in Akure, Ondo state capital, said the President has saved the party from the irredeemable crisis, saying tenure elongation was alien to the party and not contained in the party or national constitution.

Highlights From Roseanne Barr's Candid Interview With Howard Stern
President Trump was as important a character in the premiere of the " Roseanne " revival as John Goodman . There were two sessions on the first night-one with Woke TV and the other with ABC's Roseanne .

According to the Bayelsa born politician, it was surprising that NWC under Chief John Oyegun that has failed to resolve one crisis out of many, rocking almost all the state chapters of the governing party could ask for tenure extension.

He said: "I am waiting to see how the NEC will handle the controversy after the intervention of the president, and what argument it would canvass against the constitution on the contentious issues raised by the president, who has issued a fatherly directive as the leader of the party". "That position may change tomorrow but as it is today, that is the position of NEC".

"While the APC Constitution, in Article 17 (1) and 13.2 (B), limits the tenure of elected officers to four years, renewable once by another election, the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria (as amended), in section 223, also prescribes periodic elections for party executives at regular intervals, which must not exceed four years".

"In this circumstance, what is expected of us is to conduct fresh elections once the tenure of the current executives approaches its end".

"As he carries out the presidential task of reconciling members of our great Party, we once more assure him of our support in ensuring the success of this important task".

"A caretaker committee can not remedy this situation and can not validly act in place of elected officers". This is a way of disgracing him before Nigerians and entire world that President has no say in his own party.

Over 200 members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have left the party for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ido/Osi Local Government Area of Ekiti State.

"They can delay or divide us further within the party when they quote appropriate portion of the party constitution and that of the country".
