The embattled All progressives Congress, APC may be headed for a protracted crisis.If the schemes of loyalists of the out-going national chairman in the National Working Committee, NWC sail through, the coming national convention of the party will end up still born. Impeccable party sources revealed that Oyegun’s camp is putting measures in place to ensure that the convention is derailed. Part of these measures include securing a court injunction from a pliant judge two days to the convention restraining the NWC and convention planning committee from proceeding with the event.
Though APC governors, in a dramatic volt-face had aligned with Buhari against the initial elongation of Oyegun’s tenure by the party’s National Executive Committee, NEC, The Source has it on good authority that eight of the governors are not giving up on their quest to see Oyegun remain in office beyond June this year when his tenure is due to elapse. Consequently, the said governors are deploying massive funds to aid the plot to have the embattled APC boss remain in office.
The days to come, the Magazine was told, will witness a rash of pro-Oyegun court cases against the party. Specifically, APC NEC will be sued on the ground that it lacks powers to enforce national convention. Legal correctness of the suit is not the main concern of those heading to the courts but to achieve a purpose: stop the convention and provide a leeway for Oyegun to remain in office as APC national chairman in acting capacity after the expiration of his tenure.
