This was part of the decisions taken Thursday at the APC National Executive Council meeting in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The party made the decision to dissolve its NWC based on the recommendations of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Victor Giadom, the Acting National Chairman of the party, announced the development of the party at the National Executive Council meeting at the Abuja State House.

Mai-Mala Buni, Governor of Yobe State, was appointed acting Caretaker Chairman and extra-ordinary Convention Committee while the Governors of Osun state and Niger state were appointed as members.

He was immediately sworn in by Abubakar Malami, the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF).

In a speech following his appointment, the acting Caretaker Chairman of the APC said: "Today's meeting of the NEC is a continuation of the last postponed meeting of the last NEC .    Therefore, we do not have any error regarding the party's statutes".

However, the Council ratified all the decisions taken in relation to the primary elections for the position of Governor of Edo.

The APC was plunged into a leadership crisis after the appeal court upheld Oshiomhole's suspension as the national chairman of the party.

Gaidom declared himself the acting national chairman, but Oshiomhole's loyal NWC members called him an impostor and fought with him for the leadership of the party.

But Buhari supported Gaidom, an act that threw the NWC off balance.

The NWC led by Oshiomhole had announced that it would boycott the meeting and called the president's decision to support Gaidom reckless.
