The All Progressives Congress (APC) has advised the Lagos State chapter to wait for another National Executive Committee meeting or the National Convention to make its case over NEC’s decision to extend the tenure of elected and appointed party officials.
The chapter had stated that the extension was against the party’s constitution.
National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Bolaji Abdullahi, also a member of National Working Committee, NWC, gave the position of the party in an interview with Punch.
Abdullahi said, “Well, that’s democracy. A decision has been taken by the second highest decision making body of the party, which is the NEC.
“If one out of the several chapters of the party disagrees, it does not invalidate the decision.
“The chapter concerned can wait for another NEC meeting or the National Convention to make its case; this is the beauty of party democracy.
“We have internal mechanisms for resolving whatever issues that arise and we advise that these mechanisms be explored.”
