The All Progressives Congress (APC), has postponed its Board of Trustees (BoT) meeting by one week.
The APC National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, confirmed the development to Daily Trust
Though no reason was given for the postponement, Daily Trust learnt that the meeting might have been moved forward by one week in order to enable President Muhammadu Buhari participated in the process.
At the meeting, members are expected to elect the Chairman and the Secretary of the Board.
Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and National Leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed, Tinubu said to be gunning for the chairmanship position.
Chief Odigie-Oyegun had said in his recent interview that President Buhari wanted “to participate personally in” the meeting.
Members of the BoT had already started forming queues behind former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and National Leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu ahead of the meeting.
The BoT meeting would be used to elect both the Chairman and Secretary of the Board, which is an advisory body of the party.
However, a meeting of the party’s National Caucus is expected to hold tomorrow (Tuesday) March 22, 2016 as earlier announced by the APC National Chairman at the Presidential Villa, while the meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC), which is the party’s highest decision making organ, will hold on Thursday, March 24, 2016.
On July 3, 2015, the APC NEC had ratified the completion of the composition of membership of the party’s BoT.
The APC National Chairman had said at that NEC meeting that the completion of the composition of the BoT membership would enable this organ of the party undertook its constitutional responsibilities.
