Oyegun’s tenure elongation tears Buhari, APC govs apart

The tenure elongation approved by the All Progressives Congress for the National Working Committee led by Chief John Odigie-Oyegun in March has turn President Muhammadu Buhari and governors elected on its platform apart.

Buhari and the governors met at the State House, Abuja on Tuesday but couldn’t reach a consensus on whether to support the tenure elongation or accept a caretaker committee to be headed by erstwhile Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole.

While Buhari favours the second option, the governors are adamant on the Oyegun tenure.

The governors stormed out of the meeting, which lasted from 2.15pm till 3.30pm.

The governors couldn’t also reach a consensus on a new date for another meeting.

With Buhari proceeding on his annual vacation in the United Kingdom, the matter may linger on and jeopardise the party’s chances of making an impact on the 2019 elections.

The matter is currently before a court and any way it turns out would definitely affect the party.
