Operation kick APC National chairman, Oyegun out begins

Image result for John Odigie-OyegunIt really getting hot in All Progressives Congress party as the crisis is gathering momentum day by day .

The Lagos state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has rejected the extension of the tenure of the National chairman of the party, John Odigie-Oyegun. Recall that last week, the National Executive Committee at a meeting attended by President Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo alongside APC governors, announced the extension of the tenure of the National Working Committee members of the party by 1 year. Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello, made the announcement to newsmen after the meeting in Abuja.

The Lagos state chapter of the party has reacted to the elongation of tenure. At a consultative meeting held in Marina, Lagos state yesterday March 6th, the state chapter said the elongation is unconstitutional. A statement from the party reads

“Section 223 of the 1999 constitution as amended provides for periodical election on a democratic basis for principal officers and members of the executive committee of political parties. According to the constitution, election of the officers or members of the executive committee of a political party will be deemed to be periodical if done at regular intervals not exceeding four years. Article 17 of the party’s constitution also provides for a four-year tenure for its national and state executives, which is renewable for another four years.”

Speaking to newsmen, the leader of the party in Lagos central senatorial district, Tajudeen Olusi, said

We have taken reports of the state APC chairman in respect of the NEC meeting held in Abuja. We have also had the privilege of receiving great reports from our leader from the reconciliation committee. We have considered the issue of extension of tenure and we are of the firm belief that the decision is a breach of the constitution of our party and of the country. We are against the elongation of tenure. We shall continue to make our decision known to the party and to the president. In extending the tenure, the APC National Executive Committee had relied on Article 13.3 (ii) of its constitution which states that The NEC can discharge the functions of the convention in a period of emergency.

Article 13.3 (ii) of APC Constitution specifically states that the NEC of the party is empowered to;  “Discharge all functions of the National Conventions as constituted in between Conventions”.

“But the provision in Article 13.3 (ii) is not limitless and open-ended. It is a responsibility restricted by the same constitution, which provides exclusively under Article 30 (i) that: “This Constitution and Schedules hereto can be amended only by the National Convention of the Party.”

Oyegun is yet to react to this development.
