The party’s national working committee hurriedly called off the meeting after receiving intelligence report that the APC legislators-elect were spoiling for a showdown over the consensus arrangement.

Lai Mohammed, the party’s National Publicity Secretary, however, said the shift was due to the valedictory session held for the senators on Thursday.
