The All Progressives Congress, APC, has postponed by one week the long-awaited meetings of its National Caucus and National Executive Committee, NEC earlier scheduled for Monday and Tuesday.
According to the National Secretary of the party, Iyiola Omisore in a statement issued on Sunday night in Abuja, both meetings will now hold on July 18 and 19 respectively.
“Members of the National Caucus and National Executive Committee of the All Progressives Congress are hereby informed that our meetings of 10th and 11th of July 2023, have been postponed to the 18th and 19th of July 2023, respectively,” the notice said.
Omisore explained that the postponement was in honour of President Bola Tinubu for emerging as the new Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States on Sunday afternoon in Bissau, the capital of Guinea-Bissau.
“The postponement is necessitated by the regional and sub-regional schedules and engagements of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR, as the new Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States. Inconveniences regretted,” he said.
However, the Senator Abdullahi Adamu-led National Working Committee will on Monday meet with all Chairmen of APC State chapters at the national secretariat in Abuja by 1.00 pm.
The meeting is for the former Nasarawa governor to update state leaders on the nominees of the party’s statutory and ad-hoc committees before they are tabled before NEC for approval.
