  • 2019 Nigeria has no better alternative than Buhari says APC guber aspirant

Frank, however declared that he will resign his position as the deputy national publicity secretary of APC at the expiration of his tenure to pave way for new leaders, saying "I will not be part of illegal tenure extension".

Abdullahi, who appeared on a radio programme on Ray Power, said the committee was set up based on divided opinion on the position of Buhari.

The aggrieved chieftain said the decision rattled many chieftains who protested the move to exclude them from the intra-party leadership elections which the congresses and the national convention can only guarantee in accordance with the laid down extant laws.

The members led by Ademorin Kuye and Are Mutiu (Lagos); Sani Mayanchi (Zamfara); and Machu Tokwat (Kaduna) had earlier sought an ex parte order directing the NWC members to show cause why the court should not bar them from parading themselves as national officers of the party effective June 30.

"This motion was duly carried by a majority of members present at the last NEC Meeting, even though some of our party members have since spoken up very vehemently against it. Others have even taken the matter to court", the president said. "By tomorrow (today), we shall make the list public", he said.

Nigeria's ruling party could face a stormy future ahead of next year's elections as President Muhammadu Buhari called for the reversal of a one-year tenure extension recently granted the party chief and other top members.

"I remember several times the party under Chief Oyegun could not hold meeting, not to talk of taking any decision because the President, who they claimed to be leader of the party then was not available".

In his reaction, Tinubu said: "President Buhari's action saves the party from serious legal turmoil".

Buhari explained, however, that it was expected that a fresh elections be conducted once the tenure of the current executives approaches its end.

"As he carries out the presidential task of reconciling members of our great Party, we once more assure him of our support in ensuring the success of this important task". "The caretaker committee can not remedy the situation and can not now act in place of electing officer".

He said, "The president was gracious enough to say well, this is my thinking".

"Fortunately, we have already approved a timetable for the holding of congresses and elections".

"They can delay or divide us further within the party when they quote appropriate portion of the party constitution and that of the country".

A national leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, in a statement he personally signed, hailed Buhari's address at the NEC meeting.
