For the second day running the National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress, APC have been locked in a dilemma occasioned by the controversies generated by the report of the appeals committee on the Ondo State APC primaries won by Rotimi Akeredolu.
Rising from over four hours meeting at the National Secretariat of the party in Abuja, members of the NWC obviously rattled by the circumstances that led to revelation of the content of the appeal committee recommendations to the public refused to make any public comment.
Sources confirmed to our reporter that the influence of the National Leader of the party Bola Ahmed Tinubu was overwhelming and it tilted towards the annulment of the Ondo State primaries so as to pacify the leader and install Segun Abraham, his anointed candidate.
However, there are factions who are of the view that the National leader should be cut to size and his influence limited to his home state, Lagos.
The National Organising secretary of the party, Senator Osita Izunaso told media men that they had a very fruitful deliberation just as he assured APC reporters that the National Chairman will brief the press shortly.
Meanwhile, the party’s National Chairman John Odigie-Oyegun who left the venue at about 7.20pm told journalists that the party will issue a statement on the matter. “We will address you specifically. It is a very serious issue,” said Oyegun.
There are speculations that the primary elections which was won by Rotimi Akeredolu, may be annulled due irregularities in the delegate list.
