APC Fixes NEC Meeting For August 3 To Address Burning Issues


The National Caucus and the eagerly anticipated National Executive Committee sessions of the All Progressives Congress, APC, have been scheduled for August 2 and 3, respectively.

Festus Fuanter, the party’s interim national secretary, made the statement on Friday night via the account for the party on Twitter.

This event comes just 24 hours after Senator Abubakar Kyari, one of President Bola Tinubu’s nominees for minister, and President Tinubu discussed the meeting dates over the phone.

President Bola Tinubu, Vice President Kashim Shettima, former President Muhammadu Buhari, past and present APC governors, as well as the current and former Senate president, Speakers, will preside over the vital meetings of the two statutory organs of the party.

The APC’s national secretary signed the statement, which was also put on the group’s official Twitter account.

Both sessions will be held in different locations, according to the press release. The national caucus meeting is set to take place on Wednesday, August 2, 2023, at 6 o’clock sharp, according to the announcement. The Presidential Villa’s Banquet Hall in Abuja is the location. By accepting this invitation, all National Caucus members agree to attend the meeting in accordance with APC Constitutional Article 12.5.


But, the NEC meeting is set to take place on Thursday, August 3 at exactly 11:00 am at the Congress Hall of the Transcorp Hilton in Abuja. By accepting this invitation, all National Executive Committee members are required to attend the meeting in accordance with APC Constitutional Article 12.3.

This development comes less than a week after Mallam Salihu Lukman, the APC’s North-West National Vice Chairman, formally resigned from the party’s National Working Committee.

The Kaduna politician blamed the president’s intervention in party business and alleged illegal conduct, which he claimed were at odds with the founding fathers’ intentions, for his departure, according to a copy of the letter sent to our correspondent.

Lukman, therefore, reiterated that he opted to throw in the towel rather than remain in the party to continue his agitation and be seen as a distraction.
