Bolaji Abdulai speaks on APC’s tenure extension saga 


The All Progressives Congress (APC) has again stated that the tenure extension controversy rocking the party will be resolved.
National Publicity Secretary of the party, Malam Bolaji Abdullahi, gave the assurance in a chat with newsmen, yesterday.
“It is left for the NEC to decide, and if the committee recommends that the position of NEC should be maintained, then there will be no need for an elective convention”, he said.
“Then, the president and those who are concerned that the decision we have taken is correct or not, will have more confidence in the position of the party,” he added.
The APC spokesman, however, said that if the technical committee recommended that congresses should be held, the party´s NEC would consider that.
Governors elected on APC platform, had at a meeting with Buhari on Tuesday unanimously agreed that the party should hold a congress to settle the extension saga and others.
Meanwhile, APC National Chairman, John Oyegun, has said that the NEC will meet next Monday on the tenure issue.
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), John Oyegun, has said the party has resolved the issues dividing it.

The Governors are Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara, Simon Lalong of Plateau, Rochas Okorocha of Imo, Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano and Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun.
The governors were earlier with President Muhammadu Buhari, where they made known their decision of supporting the president against the extension of Oyegun’s tenure .
“Today the governors, NWC decided to sit and look at the issues seemingly dividing us. All the issues have been completely and totally resolved. We are back in business as one united and happy family.
“I want to say that NEC setup a technical committee. From the minute we called them into session they have worked non-stop with virtually no sleep,” Oyegun said.
Oyegun also confirmed the national executive committee (NEC) meeting of the party will hold on Monday.
“NEC will hold on Monday. The chairman of the committee said his report will be ready by evening it will be placed at NEC for appropriate actions.
