Buhari, Osinbajo in attendance as APC holds NEC meeting to discuss 2023 election schedule


President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo are present as the All Progressives Congress (APC) holds its national executive committee (NEC) meeting in the federal capital territory (FCT).


The meeting is being held at Transcorp Hotels.


The NEC meeting is the first after the election of a new national working committee (NWC) at the party’s convention of March 26.


Others present at the meeting are Senate President Ahmad Lawan, Femi Gbajabiamila, speaker of the house of representatives, and Kayode Fayemi, chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF).


Last week, Felix Morka, APC spokesman, said the meeting would consider the party’s schedule for the primaries ahead of the 2023 elections and other relevant business.


“Pursuant to Article 25.2.ii of the Constitution of the All Progressives Congress (APC), the National Working Committee (NWC) hereby invites members of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of our great Party to a meeting to consider the Party’s Timetable/Schedule of Activities for Primaries for the nomination of candidates for the 2023 General Elections and other relevant business of the Party,” the statement reads.


“All members of the NEC are by this invitation to take notice of the meeting in accordance with Article 12.3 of the APC constitution, please.”


The date of the party’s presidential primary poll is expected to be fixed at the meeting.
