Ahead of the May 30th presidential primaries, The All Progressives Congress (APC) national executive committee (NEC) has transferred the party’s national working committee (NWC) with its powers for three months.
With the transfer of powers, the NWC led by Abdullahi Adamu, APC national chairman, will take decisions on behalf of the party’s NEC.
The decision to transfer the NEC’s powers to the NWC followed a motion sponsored by Senate President Ahmad Lawan.
The motion was seconded by Nasir el-Rufai, Kaduna governor, Iyiola Omisore, APC national secretary, told journalists.
Omisore said the NEC resolved to transfer its powers in line with article 13(3) of the party’s constitution.
This means the party’s NWC could solely fix the party’s schedule ahead of the 2023 general election.
