Just In: APC Dissolves Its National Working Committee


Presidential Aide, Tolu Ogunlesi has disclosed the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday dissolved its National Working Committee (NWC).

The problem in the APC NWC came to a head on Tuesday last week when the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja upheld the suspension of the party’s National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, by the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory.

At an emergency meeting on the evening of the same day, 17 members of the NWC loyal to Oshiomhole, appointed a former governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, as acting chairman.

Giadom, in a counter move, together with two other NWC members, addressed a press conference on June 17, when he declared himself as the acting chairman. He backed his action with the judgment of the FCT high court, which in March gave him the go-ahead to be the acting national chairman.

Following the power tussle, the ruling party has decided to dissolve the NWC 

Tolu Ogunlesi took to Twitter saying, “Major shake-up in Nigeria’s ruling party APC, as National Executive Council (NEC) meets at the State House, National Working Committee (NWC) dissolved.”

Ogunlesi also disclosed that a “caretaker committee” will be put in place.
