Breaking: Pro-Oshiomhole NWC Members Head To Court Over Dissolution
Members of the pro-Adam Oshiomole National Working Committee (NWC) have resolved to take legal action over the resolution of the National Executive Committee (NEC) to dissolve the NWC of the APC.
NEC had during an emergency meeting on Thursday dissolved the NWC, setting up caretaker committee headed by the former National Secretary and current Governor of Yobe state, Mai Mala Buni.

However, reacting to the development, a anonymous member of the pro-Oshiomole NWC disclosed that arrangements have been concluded to seek legal redress, the Daily Sun reports.
Faulting NWC’s decision, the NWC member insisted that there is no provision of a Caretaker Committee in the constitution of the ruling party, insisting that there are many grounds of infractions committed from the resolutions of NEC.
The pro-Oshiomole NWC member stated;
We will soon issue statement but we have resolved to head to court for the legal interpretations of the decision of NEC especially as it concerns our dissolution. Yes, we know that Oshiomhole has his faults, but with all the positive contributions he has made to reposition the party, won’t he have been given to honours of telling him to resign?.
Meanwhile, the APC Chairman caretaker committee has formally taken over the running of the ruling party on Thursday afternoon shortly after the setting up of the committee, with no fewer than five other Progressive Governors Forum (PGF).
Speaking to newsmen at the secretariat, he paid tribute to the dissolved National Working Committee (NWC) for the contributions made in the development of the party, stressing that with the decision, they have no role to play in the running of the party.
He arrived the secretariat with the governors of Kano, Umar Ganduje, Kaduna, Mallam El-Rufai, Kogi, Yahaya Bello, Gombe, Inua Yahaya, among others.
Similarly, a forum of the Non-National Working Committee of APC has dissolved its executive, hitherto led by Hon. Nelso Alapa.
The action followed the decision of NEC meeting to dissolve the NWC at the meeting earlier today.
Addressing newsmen in Abuja, the acting publicity secretary, Muhammad Sani Ibrahim, said;
The forum was dissolved for leadership failure, ineffectiveness, uncooperative attitude, lack of transparency and accountability in stewardship, financial misappropriation and party unfaithfulness.
