Buhari’s verdict disqualifies Oyegun & Co from seeking re-election

President Muhammadu Buhari Monday says current members of the National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress [APC]  led by Chief John Odigie-Oyegun are no longer qualified to seek re-election except the party decides to give a waiver in the forthcoming congresses and national convention of the APC.

This was revealed at the National Executive Committee [NEC] meeting of the party in Abuja.

Buhari said based on the provision of Section 30 (1) (3), any officer currently serving and wants to seek re-election must resign their appointments 30 days before the election.

Based on that provision, the current National Working Committee [NWC] and other officials across the states “are not eligible to run.”

He, however, said if they choose to seek re-election, they may be allowed through waiver.

“A statement granting the waiver should be issued by the party immediately,” Buhari stated.
