Why APC Can’t Hold Emergency NEC Meeting – Acting Chairman

Following the emergency shaking the ruling party, escalated by the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as its National Chairman, there have been requires the NEC meeting to determine its bunch of difficulties.

Deputy Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, had at the end of the week shouted out, encouraging President Buhari to act quick by at any rate requiring the gathering’s crisis National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting to address the administration emergency shaking the gathering.

Yet, tending to correspondents in Abuja yesterday, Eta brought up that whenever met, a NEC meeting would damage the COVID-19 pandemic convention forbidding open social events, having more than 120 individuals.

“I do not believe there is anybody afraid or scared of convening the NEC meeting. For those who want to build this party, who want this party to outlast this present government, they are such in number that there is no fear of convening NEC meeting,” he said.

“What has been militating against constituting NEC meeting in the recent past is, of course, the COVID-19 pandemic that has stopped everybody from gathering more than a certain number of persons.

“As you are all aware, we have over 120 members of NEC and it would amount to breaking the COVID-19 protocol as established by the Nigerian authorities prohibiting gathering of more than 50 people at a time. It will take our breaking that protocol for us to have a NEC meeting,” he said.

He, however, added that if it turns out that the party can have a waiver to convene the NEC, it could explore that, adding that nobody is afraid of having NEC meeting.

“There is no way the ruling party will voluntarily disobey or break rules it is part of making,” he said.
