Filed in News by on June 20, 2018

APart from National Secretary Mai Mala Buni and one or two others, the other members of the Oyegun-led Natioal Working Committee (NWC) are not likely to retain their positions at Saturday’s national convention of the All Progressives Congress (APC), it was learnt yesterday.

President Muhammadu Buhari, according to the source, had told party leaders of his interest in three key positions – National Chairman, National Secretary and National Organising Secretary.

Apart from National Chairman Chief John Odigie Oyegun, the President might have also told National Organising Secretary Senator Osita Izunaso, not to seek re-election.

While Oyegun backed down, Izunaso has been pushinmg ahead by arranging endorsements from varius organs in the south east for his bid.

The source said many members of the NWC might have designed a plot to ensure that they retain their positions through the preparation of a unity list for the goverors to ratify at today’s meeting.

An aspirants for the office of National Vice Chairman North-east, Dr. Umar Duhu, said no one had convened a meeting in his zone.

Duhu said “it will be laughable to suggest among others that, the meeting of APC governors will produce a unity list without recourse to the aspirants.”

Another aspirant contesting the office of National Youth Leader, who pleaded not to be named said: “any attempt by the party to select some contestants will be met with serious resistance at the convention venue.”
