Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is not quite happy with the latest profound changes that have made him lose the power of the ruling political community, the former governor of the state of Lagos, and the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The governors elected on the party's platform on Thursday took the National Executive Committee (NEC) over leadership of the group following the demise of the National Working Committee of the Group (NWC).
The decision to split down the NWC was made after President Muhammadu Buhari 's suggestion, who is the party leader because of his role.
Given the resistance to the unlawful gathering by late Abiola Ajimobi-led NWC, the President, Vice President, governors, and other members engaged in the presidential village meeting in Abuja.
While Tinubu was not involved, he rejected the NEC meetings. The attendance was also made, among others, by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Gov. Ganduje Abdullahy of Kano, Gov. Gboyega Oyetola.
The new pattern is also hypothesized maybe in 2023 he has compensated for his presidential aspirations even though, Tinubu did not confirm whether he's running or not.
President Buhari and other leaders decided to convene the NEC after the illegality perpetrated by the Ajimobi-led Exco represented by Hilliard Eta, as a credible source in the party that attended the NEC meeting disclosed.
He also said the President and other stakeholders who were worried about the various conflicts and disagreements, agreed to wade in until the matter got out of control and to regain normalcy.
Aside from the various conflicts and trials, the president was disregarded by the illegally Ajimobi-led exco techniques. Ajimobi, they knew, was in a coma with very few survival chances, but Hilliard Eta, who seems some quarter to receive instructions, gave statements on his behalf.
Many of us who love this party and are aware of the actual situation on the ground must inform the president of the need to address these issues urgently and the NEC meeting has been approved for this reason. The NEC has named a caretaker committee led by Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State after the dissolution of the NWC. The Federal Attorney General and the Minister of Justice of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), sworn him in instantly.
Other leaders include Isiaka Oyebola (South-West); Ken Nnamani, former Senate president southeast; Stella Okorete – Women's Rep; Sani Bello, Niger State (North-central) and Dr. James Lalu, physically challenged.
Sen. Abubakar Yusuf, Member of the Senate; Hon. Akinyemi Olaide – Reps, David Leon from the South-South, Abba Ari from the northwest, and Professor Tahir Mamman from the northeast, Ismail Ahmed – Youth and Sen. Apan Udoedehe as Committee Secretary.
