APC moves to fill vacant NWC positions

Abuja - Following the appointment of some members of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) into the Federal Executive Council (FEC), the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has concluded plans to fill their positions, reports Thisday.

The party is, however, considering appointing the new members of the NWC who will serve in acting capacity pending the next national convention of the party.

Three NWC members including, the former National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed and the Vice Chairman (North East), Bukachir David Lawal, National Welfare Officer (North-west) recently left their offices to assume duties as government appointees.

Mohammed was appointed the Minister of Information and Culture while Lawal became the Secretary to the Federal Government of the Federation.

NWC’s latest move to fill the positions was made more urgent following the bickering it was having with the deputy spokesman, Timi Frank and the  controversy being generated by a directive ceding his job temporarily to the National Secretary, Mai Bala Buni.

The situation became worse recently when Frank was said to have threatened to drag the party leadership to court if it continued to allow the secretary to usurp his functions.
