APC National Secretary: Waziri Bulama
Waziri Bulama in a statement on Wednesday claimed that Giadom is neither a member of the Party’s National Working Committee (NWC), nor a member of the APC and as such, has no authority to convene a NEC meeting of the party. He urged members of the party to disregard the NEC meeting scheduled to hold tomorrow the 25th of June 2020, including the president, who had earlier stated that the law was behind Giadom’s emergence as the acting National Chairman of the APC.
“He had voluntarily resigned in compliance with Article 31(1)(i) of our constitution, to contest the position of deputy governor in Rivers State during the last general elections and has not been re-nominated by his zone to return to that office” , said Waziri who noted also, that Victor Giadom had been suspended by the River State chapter of the party on June 21st 2020.

The recent crisis in APC began when the incumbent Governor of Edo State, Gov. Godwin Obaseki was disqualified from contesting the party’s primary election. The Governor has since moved over to the PDP, where he obtained a waiver to participate in the political party’s primary elections. The National Seceretary said that it cannot be true that President Buhari is in support of the NEC meeting being convened by Giadom ; “Our leader, President Muhammadu Buhari is renowned insisting on compliance with our constitution and rule of law. It can therefore not be true, that Mr President supports the convening of such an illegal NEC by a non-member of APC's NWC” he stated.
