Romanus Ugwu, Abuja
Uncertain about their future, some members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) started moving out their personal belongings from their offices, yesterday.
Fazed by the reality of an imminent conduct of congresses and the uncertainty of their future, personal assistants to some of the NWC members havd begun moving their personal belongings like portraits and documents.
A staff at the headquarters told Daily Sun in confidence that the haste to evacuate their personal effects was to avoid the embarrassment following likelihood of setting up a Convention committee at the emergency NEC meeting slated for Monday.
“This week is their only chance for the NWC members to tidy up their offices since they are not sure of returning. Once NEC sets up convention committee the responsibilities of the NWC will be reduced to ceremonial.
“Don’t forget that they have just few months to operate here before some of them re-contesting would compulsorily resign as stipulated by the party constitution. So, they technically have few months to function effectively and they don’t want to be reduced to inconsequential level once the emergency NEC meeting agrees on congresses and convention. It is obvious that they don’t want any embarrassment.”
The NWC members have been engaged in a titanic battle with factions of the party over the legality of the motion by the National Executive Committee (NEC) to extend the tenure of the national and state executives of the party.
