NWC dissolution: APC NEC has not acted strangely — Tony Momoh

NWC dissolution: APC NEC has not acted strangely — Tony Momoh

Chief Tony Momoh

A former Minister of Information, Chief Tony Momoh, says the National Executive Council of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has not acted strangely by dissolving the party’s National Working Committee.

Momoh, also a chieftain of the party, made the assertion in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Thursday.

NAN reports that the APC NEC had, at a special meeting on Thursday in Abuja, dissolved the party’s NWC following the leadership crisis in the party.

The party’s NEC then appointed a Caretaker Committee, headed by Gov. Mai Buni of Yobe State to pilot the affairs of the party for six months.

Reacting, Momoh said the party’s NEC had the constitutional powers to dissolve the NWC.

He explained that NEC could take such decision when some pending issues in the party could not be resolved by the NWC of the party.

The former minister, however, said it was not for him to say whether the dissolution was good for the progress of the party or not.

“What the NEC has done is not strange; They have the constitutional powers to dissolve the NWC and what they have just done is to exercise that power.

“In the party’s hierarchy, the NEC is higher, so, it can take certain decisions that will be binding on NWC; again such decisions will have to be ratified by the party’s convention.

“So, I can’t say whether the dissolution is good or not, but what is clear is that the NEC can take decisions to resolve lingering issues in the party,” he said.

Momoh said anybody, including members of the dissolved NWC, could still aspire to the leadership positions of the party at the national convention.

He stressed the need to hold NEC meetings every quarter as enshrined in the party’s constitution.

Momoh said regular holding of NEC meetings would help to stabilise and strengthen the party
