Lagos APC reports Oyegun to Buhari

Sequel to its rejection of the tenure elongation approved for National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), John Odigie-Oyegun, the Lagos chapter of the party has resolved to petition President Muhammadu Buhari on the matter.

The leader of the APC in Lagos Central senatorial district, Chief Tajudeen Olusi, confirmed this yesterday.

Olusi said the Lagos chapter was prepared to register its displeasure with President Buhari and other appropriate organs of the party.

“The option available to us is that we are going to make representations to all organs of the party.

“We are going to talk with the national leadership, the national executive and President Buhari”, he told Thisday.

Olusi, who earlier faulted the tenure elongation, quoting Section 223 of the 1999 Constitution as amended which stipulates elections at interval and Article 17 of the APC constitution, which stipulates a four-year tenure for its national and state executives, said it amounts to depriving other aspirants to the post.

“The tenure elongation is against the constitution of Nigeria and the party. It is a means of depriving aspirants who want to aspire.

“We think we should allow democracy to thrive in the party,” he added.

Noting that APC leaders in Lagos unanimously rejected the elongation after receiving reports from the Chairman, Chief Henry Ajomale, Olusi however declares that the state was in support of the reconciliatory responsibility assigned to former Governor, Bola Tinubu.
