on

The National caucus of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has stated that it will hold an emergency meeting to discuss prevalent issues according to an exclusive report from the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN,

The meeting is coming after the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, postponed the earlier scheduled Feb. 16 Presidential and National Assembly elections. NAN reports that the APC caucus, which is a statutory organ of the party, is chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari and has the Vice President and all the party’s former governors as members. Its membership also includes the party’s serving governors, and members of its National Working Committee (NWC), among others. INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, had a few hours to commencement of the presidential and National Assembly elections announced the rescheduling of the exercise by one week.

By the postponement, the Presidential and National Assembly elections now come up on Feb. 23, while the Governorship and State House of Assembly elections come up on March 9. Yakubu had said the decision to postpone the elections was taken after a meeting with INEC Commissioners, citing “logistics’’ problems as issues that prompted the postponement. He said the decision was further necessitated after reviewing the level of the commission’s preparedness for the exercise. He stressed that postponing the elections was a difficult decision, but was necessary for successful delivery of the elections and to consolidate on Nigeria’s democracy

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole, has said his party would wait till February 23, to punish the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for accusing the APC of instigating the postponement of the general elections. Recall that the PDP had alerted Nigerians that contrary to simulated stance by the Buhari Presidency and National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, it possessed facts which confirmed that elements of the Federal Government and the APC sabotaged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in a well-orchestrated plot to engineer a staggered presidential election.

But speaking at a press conference in Abuja last night, Oshiomhole’s media aide, Simon Egbebulem, said described the allegation was height of irresponsibility and desperation on the part of the PDP. He said: ‘’The entire world was at the venue where the National Chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole expressed his disappointment very sincerely before the chairman of the INEC over the postponement of the election. President Muhammadu Buhari did the same.”But we will not dissipate energy in responding to the PDP allegation because we await them at the polls.We all were in this country when under the PDP government the then President ordered the Chairman of the INEC to postpone the election.
