Following rancor in the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, the Forum of Non-NWC National Executive Committee (NEC) members has given a-14-day ultimatum to Oyegun to convene NEC meeting.
The position of the aggrieved leaders came just as the party is said to be considering makinf appointments that runs contrary to party’s constitution.
In a communique signed by the group’s Coordinator and National Ex-Officio, (South-west), Hon. Omolaoye O. Akintola, it said that the party’s leadership has failed to convene NEC meetings and national convention as stipulated in the constitution.
“Article 25(Ai) which provides that “APC’s national convention shall be held once in two years at a date, time and venue to be recommended by the NWC and approved by NEC.
“That APC constitutional provisions should be legitimately followed henceforth and necessary redress be made.
“The forum is hereby demanding for a prompt inauguration of our party Board of Trustees as provided in our constitution.”
APC’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Timi Frank, also cautioned that the party risks losing members to an emerging new coalition party in the coming months.
“I have to continue to speak out on the shortcomings in the leadership of our party.
“If we do not make this reform now, I bet you by the time we want to do it in 2019, it will be too late.
“You are aware that there are so many political realignments going on in this country as at today.
“APC has within now and January 2017 to get things right, failure to do so before that time might be too late.
“By then, most of us will be seeking alternatives to pursue our political agendas.
“If we are not careful, there might not be APC in 2019,” he said.
“I must remind the president on why he must act fast to see reason why Oyegun has to resign from his position,” Frank said.
