THE Edo State Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Barr. Anslem Ojezua, yesterday declared that the purported extension of the tenure of members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party including that of the National chairman of the party, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun was illegal and called on the leadership of the party to correct it in order not to plunge the party into crisis ahead of the 2019 general election.
Ojezua who addressed journalists in Benin City yesterday, said no decision was reached at the party’s NEC meeting extending the tenure of Chief Oyegun, explaining that only a motion was moved to extend the tenure of Chief Oyegun and others but NEC was reminded about provisions of the party’s constitution.
Barr Ojezua stressed that no decision was reached at NEC as regards tenure elongation and explained that state chairmen of the party supported it because they were beneficiaries.
He said, “There must be a misconception as what decision the National Executive Committee of the APC made.
