APC NWC IN A CLOSE DOOR MEETING WITH APC SENATORS
APC NWC led by Oyegun is in a Close Door meeting with APC senators led by Sen. Bukola Saraki at the National Assembly. The meeting Happening Now has exceeded 30mins.
In his opening speech, Sen. Ahmed Lawan who is the leader of the Senate said,” Today, we are receiving the national chairman of the party and other members of the National Working Committee in the National Assembly, particularly in the senate. The national chairman requested last week that the National Working Committee of our party will like to meet the senate APC caucus and we have chosen today as that day to interact with our party.
We believe that this meeting is important and will go a long way in addressing important and key issues in our party. We believe that we can have more of this to make this party better and stronger. I pray that this meeting produces very positive and progressive outcome that will show us better ways of managing our party and even our government. This meeting will afford us the opportunity to talk to our leaders on any issue that we feel strongly and seriously about and therefore we shouldn’t lose this opportunity.
The APC party Chairman Chief John Odigie Oyegun said there is a dual purpose for coming here today. The very first is to show our solidarity on the passing out of distinguished colleague Senator Wakili. I know you have honoured him several times but I want to request on behalf of the National Working Committee that we honour him one more time by a minute silence.
I’m glad to be here again. I don’t think I’m here often enough. It’s a good opportunity to discuss general issues. Issues that have arisen from the polity, the reality of an election in less than a year, 11 months, 10 months if you want to be economical. And some interests that bind us together. We are here to talk, we are here to listen, we are here to strategise on best way as we approaching the critical months ahead. That is the 2019 election.
