Confirmed: Buhari Saves Oshiomhole’s Job, Forces Postponement Of APC NEC Meeting Indefinitely



President Muhammadu Buhari have waded into the crisis rocking the All Progressive Congress (APC), forcing the immediate postponement of the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeeting in which the fate of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as national chairman of the party was to be decide.

This was in confirmation to BIGPEN prediction that the plot to remove Oshiomhole would run into hitches before the Tuesday’s NEC meeting following moves by Buhari who is not keen with the removal plans to save him.

It was gathered that decision to allow Oshiomhole continue with his job came after Buhari on Monday met behind closed doors with governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress at the State House, Abuja.


Although the agenda of the meeting was unknown as at the time filing this report, Governor Atiku Bagudu, who led the governors to the meeting with Buhari, announced the postponement of the APC National Executive Committee meeting earlier scheduled for Tuesday.

Bagudu, who spoke with State House correspondents at the end of the meeting, said the postponement was at the instance of the governors.

The NEC meeting was believed to have been scheduled to remove the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole.


NAN reports that the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, had earlier met with the President behind closed doors at the State House.

NAN reliably learnt that the meeting between the President and Gbajabiamila was centred on the APC leadership crisis and the proposed $22.7 billion loan as it affects all the six geopolitical zones, particularly the South East.

BIGPEN recalls that the Deputy President of the Senate, Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege also met with President Buhari last week behind closed doors at the heat of the plot to disgrace Oshiomhole out of office.
