Insight into Major decisions of APC National Executive Council meeting

Share This

Some major decisions were taken at the just-concluded National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) held at the presidential villa in Abuja. The virtual meeting was attended by President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, state Governors and some members of the National Working Committee of the party.


Below are the highlights of the meeting: 

1) Following the recommendation of President Muhammadu Buhari, the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party (APC) was dissolved. This means the Adams Oshiomhole-led leadership of the party was sacked.


2) A Caretaker/Extraordinary National Convention Committee was then appointed to be led by Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State. Mr Buni was national secretary of the APC until his election as governor in 2019.


3) Other 12 members were also appointed for the Caretaker Committee. They are:

  • Governor Mai Mala Buni (Yobe) Chairman
  • Governor Isiaka Oyetola (representing South West)
  • Ken Nnamani (South East representative)
  • Stella Okorete – (Women Rep)
  • Governor Sani Bello (representing North-Central)
  • Dr James Lalu (Representing Physically Challenged)
  • Senator Abubakar Yusuf (Senatè Representative)
  • Hon. Akinyemi Olaide – (representing House of Representatives)
  • David Leon (representing South-South)
  • Abba Ari (representing North West)
  • Prof. Tahir Mamman (representing North East)
  • Ismail Ahmed – (Youth Representative)
  • Sen. Akpan Udoedehe- Secretary


4) The new Caretaker Committee is to conduct a National Convention to elect new leadership for the APC within 6 months.


5) The APC governorship primary in Edo State, which produced Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu as the party’s governorship candidate, was ratified.


6) A resolution was reached for APC members to discontinue all litigation involving members of the party, which are connected to party matters.


In making a case for this resolution, President Buhari told participants, “The directive had been issued before, unfortunately, some members failed to heed the directive. Thus, at this time, it must be made a Resolution of the Party   which must be effectively enforced with dire consequences for members who choose to ignore the directive.’’
