The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress, APC has urges it’s members to shun the Victor Giadom led NEC meeting slated to hold today (Thursday).

In a statement jointly signed by Acting National Chairman, Ntufam Hillard Eta and acting National Secretary Waziri Bulama after an emergency NWC meeting, they said attending such a meeting would amount to embracing illegalities and turning a blind eye to the infractions on the Constitution of the party.

The NWC added that it believed that the President was ill advised.

The statemrnt reads: “We wish to unequivocally state that members of the National Working Committee (NWC) believe that the President was offered wrong advice or blackmailed into lending his weighty office to the illegality of the National Executive Committee meeting purportedly convened by one Victor Giadom on 25th June, 2020.

“We hereby respectfully implore Mr. President to kindly avail himself with facts of the matter regarding the impasse presently experienced by the Party so as to guide him in his assessment of the matter because we are sure that the President if properly advised, would come to the conclusion that the meeting convened by Chief Victor Giadom bothers on illegality and criminality.

“The National Working Committee (NWC) regrets to turn down the invitation to the illegal and unconstitutional National Executive Committee (NEC) convened by Chief Victor Giadom.

“We believe that attending such a meeting will amount to embracing illegalities and turning a blind eye to the infractions on the Constitution of our great Party.”

In an earlier statement rejecting the meeting, Bulama declared it illegal.

Bulama said:  ”Our leader, the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria(Muhammadu Buhari),  is renowned for insisting on compliance with our constitution and rule of law.

“It can therefore not be true that Mr. President supports the convening of such an illegal NEC by a non-member of  the APC’s NWC. We urge all to disregard the said notice as neither the NWC nor the NEC has called for such meeting.
