President Muhammadu Buhari has asked the National Executive Committee of the All Progressives Congress to reverse its decision granting a tenure extension for party executives at all levels.
Buhari asked the party’s NEC to henceforth avoid taking decisions capable of leading the party into playing into the hands of the opposition.
He said this in his opening remarks at the ongoing NEC Meeting of the party in Abuja.
According to him, the tenure extension was at variance with the party’s constitution as well as the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
He said he had received legal advice from the Attorney-General and Minister of Justice on the matter.
