President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that members of the John Odigie-Oyegun-led National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress, APC, are not eligible to seek re-election in the forthcoming congresses and national convention of the party.

Speaking at the National Executive Committee, NEC, meeting of the APC at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja on Monday, Buhari pointed out that the provision of Section 30 (1) (3), any officer currently serving and wants to seek re-election must resign their appointments 30 days before the election.

Buhari added that based on that provision, the current National Working Committee, NWC, and other officials across the states “are not eligible to run”.

He, however, said if they choose to seek re-election, they may be allowed through a waiver.
