Following leadership crisis that had rocked ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), President Muhammadu Buhari has approved postponement of the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the party.
The postponement came hours after the Appeal Court failed to call the suit filed by APC chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, disappointing him and his counsels.
Buhari announced the postponement during a 30 minutes closed-door meeting on Monday with Progressive Governors Forum, governors of the party, barely 24 hours to the event, in Abuja.
Confirming the President’s decision, Kebbi State Governor, Atiku Bagudu, told newsmen that the president agreed to their request for the postponement of the meeting, saying, the meeting will hold when the governors are able to resolve the present crisis.
Earlier, Oshiomhole has filed an appeal against the ruling by a Federal High Court in Abuja, which asked him to step aside as chairman.
The Appeal court had last week sent notices of hearing to parties in the appeal. But, when parties got to court today, a panel of three justices led by Justice Stephen Adah sat to hear other cases.
