Barely a week to next Saturday’s presidential and National Assembly elections, the Senator Abdullahi Adamu-led National Working Committee NWC of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has summoned state governors of the party to an emergency meeting in Abuja.
The meeting slated for 2 pm on Sunday is coming barely week before the elections.
Although the agenda for the meeting was not disclosed, it was gathered that it was not unconnected with developments in the polity, especially the current cash crunch and its effects on campaigns.
“The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), his Excellency, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, invites State Governors of the Party to an emergency meeting to be held on Sunday, February 19, 2023, by 2 pm at the National Secretariat, Abuja”, party spokesperson, Felix Morka, said in a message sent out on Friday night.
Since the naira redesign policy and the difficulty in accessing the new notes began, the NWC has not met as a body to take a decision on the matter even though one of its members had exonerated the party, saying it was not carried along.
