Muhammadu Buhari has said extension of tenure of All Progressives Congress (APC) National Working Committee (NWC) recently approved by the party´s National Executive Committee (NEC) was illegal and unconstitutional.
He noted that the decision was already causing acrimony within the party.
He said that the development was especially so as some party members who were not comfortable with the decision had already taken the party to court.
He said that with the decision, some party members were already feeling that they had been deprived the right to aspire to executive positions.
“Some other party members are now of the opinion that internal democracy is not at play within the party,’’ he added.
John Odigie-Oyegun said the decision was in good faith, some members, who were not comfortable with it, have taken the party to court over the issue.
“I think it is important for me to speak quickly on the contentious issue of the tenure of our national and state executive officers.
´´I have taken time to view and seek advice on the resolution and what I find is that it contravenes the party´s Constitution and the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,’’ Buhari said.
