Itse Sagay, the Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, PACAC, has advised President Muhammadu Buhari against the National Executive Committee, NEC, meeting of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The NEC meeting is being convened by Victor Giadom who claims to be the rightful acting national chairman of the party.
His claim got backed by Buhari yesterday who revealed that the law is on his side.
Reacting to Buhari’s decision to attend the meeting, Itse Sagay stated that Giadom who mounted as the acting national chairman from the position of deputy national chairman does not have the right to do so nor convene a meeting.
Sagay told the Nation: “I’m stunned by this turn of events. How can a deputy national secretary have the ambition to be the chairman of a party when you have deputy chairmen and vice-chairmen?
“That is why it is absurd. It does not make sense. His position makes it impossible for him to be the acting national chairman.
“The legal advice the President got is mischievous in the extreme because there is no court order to extend since it does not exist.
“So I would advise the President to step back from this matter and not participate in it.”
