SHOWDOWN LOOMS IN APC OVER TENURE OF CARETAKER COMMITTEE

Written by on November 11, 2020

THE RULING ALL PROGRESSIVES CONGRESS (APC) IS HEADING FOR ANOTHER ROUND OF CRISIS AS POWER BLOCS IN THE PARTY ARE PREPPED FOR A FIGHT OVER ALLEGED SUBTERRANEAN PLOTS TO EXTEND THE TENURE OF THE NATIONAL CARETAKER AND EXTRAORDINARY CONVENTION PLANNING COMMITTEE.

THE CARETAKER COMMITTEE, CHAIRED BY YOBE STATE GOVERNOR, MAI MALA BUNI, WAS SET UP IN JUNE, AFTER THE DISSOLUTION OF THE PARTY’S NATIONAL WORKING COMMITTEE (NWC), LED BY A FORMER EDO STATE GOVERNOR, ADAMS OSHIOMHOLE, WITH A SIX-MONTH MANDATE TO REFORM THE PARTY AND CONDUCT A NATIONAL CONVENTION TO BIRTH A NEW LEADERSHIP.

HOWEVER, ABOUT SEVEN WEEKS TO THE END OF ITS TENURE, THE CARETAKER COMMITTEE IS FAR FROM ACHIEVING THE TASK, TRIGGERING SPECULATIONS THAT IT IS PLOTTING TO SEEK APPROVAL FROM THE NATIONAL EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE (NEC) OF THE PARTY FOR THE ELONGATION OF ITS TENURE BEYOND DECEMBER.

BUT IN A SWIFT REACTION, BUNI DESCRIBED THE ALLEGATION OF PLANNED TENURE ELONGATION AS FALSE, SAYING THAT THE COMMITTEE COMPRISES THREE GOVERNORS WHO ARE NOT SEEKING FOR NEW JOBS.

THE COMMITTEE ALSO YESTERDAY SECURED THE BACKING OF PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI TO COMMENCE FRESH REGISTRATION OF NEW PARTY MEMBERS.

THE APC NEC, PRESIDED OVER BY BUHARI, HAD DISSOLVED THE NWC AND SET UP THE CARETAKER COMMITTEE TO ARREST A POWER TUSSLE CAUSED BY THE SUSPENSION OF OSHIOMHOLE.
