ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- Salihu Mohammed Lukman, the National Vice Chairman (North West) of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), has given one week to the party’s national chairman, Abdullahi Adamu to commence the process of convening the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting.
Lukman in an open letter addressed to Adamu dated 19 April, 2023, said the meeting should be convened to discuss critical issues affecting the party before the 29 May, 2023 handover date.
It would be recall that a foundation member of the APC, Rev. Alancha had on Tuesday, also called on Adamu to convene an emergency NEC meeting where zoning of the 10th National Assembly positions should be discussed and finalised.
Lukman who is also a member of the APC National Working Committee (NWC) said he would take legal action against Adamu if he fails to comply with his demand.
In the letter titled, “Restoring constitutional order in APC not negotiable”, the APC vice chairman on Wednesday said: “I make this an open letter because it is about campaigning to return the APC to its foundation, which requires that we mobilise all like-minded party leaders and members in this crusade to restore constitutional order in the APC.
“As a person, I have concluded that everything must be done to compel you to respect the constitution of our party and manage its affairs based on the requirements of our constitution and not your personal discretion.
“Therefore, by this open letter, I am serving you notice of one week from today, Wednesday, April 19, 2023 ,to take all the appropriate steps required to convene an NEC meeting before May 29, 2023, wherein all the issues bordering on the management of smooth transition between the outgoing government of President Buhari and the incoming government of President Asiwaju Tinubu can be considered.
“If by the end of this one-week notice, no action is taken to convene an NEC meeting as the first step to restoring constitutional order in APC, I will not hesitate to take further actions, including approaching our courts to enforce compliance with the provisions of our party’s constitution under your leadership.”
