– Caretaker Committee to conduct party’s conventions
The All Progressive Congress, APC, caretaker panel will be meeting today, being Monday, 29th of June to set up the Congress committees of the party.
Caretaker committee which was set up after the National Executive Committee, NEC, dissolved the National Working Committee, NWC, of the party last Thursday, were given the mandate to hold all ward, local and state congresses without an exclusion of the National conventions of the party within the next 6 months.
At today’s meeting which will be chaired by the chairman of the caretaker committee, Mai Mala Buni, the panel will deliberate to set up important committees for the party’s upcoming congresses and he convention.
In a report by PunchNg, the committees to be set up include the finance and the publicity among others.
Recall that the decision to dissolve the NWC was birthed by the power tussle within the party which has led to factionalising the party after the National Chairman’s suspension was upheld by the Federal court of appeal in Abuja.
However, two factions on June 17 emerged in the party with one led by its suspended Deputy National Secretary, Victor Giadom, and the other consisting of 18 NWC members loyal to Oshiomhole.

Despite the opposition of the 18 NWC members, the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Wednesday declared his support for Giadom and attended the NEC meeting convened by him on Thursday.
The dissolution of the Oshiomhole-led NWC at the instance of Buhari has been accepted by leaders of the party including Oshiomhole himself and some party officials, who initially opposed the President.
