The outgoing Executives in the All Progressive Congress, APC from the ward to the national levels are ineligible to seek re- election in the planned congresses of the party.
This was disclosed by President Muhammadu Buhari at the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the All Progressive Congress, APC held in Abuja.
He anchored his statement based on the provision of Section 30 (1) (3), which states any officer currently serving and wants to seek re-election must resign their appointments 30 days before the election.
Buhari added that based on that provision, the current National Working Committee, NWC, and other officials across the states “are not eligible to run”.
He, however, said if they choose to seek re-election, they may be allowed through waiver.
Buhari stated that if the party wishes to grant such waiver, “a statement granting the waiver should be issued by the party immediately”.
