The All Progressives Congress (APC) has indefinitely postponed the inauguration of its newly constituted standing committees, a decision reportedly influenced by rejections from certain committee members, most notably, Abdulsamad Rabiu, the chairman of BUA Group, who was appointed to the finance committee.
Last Thursday, Party Spokesman Felix Morka announced the constitution of five standing committees by the National Working Committee (NWC), which included Establishment, Finance, Publicity, Intergovernmental, and Conflict Resolutions. Uguru Ofoke was named the Chairman of the Finance committee, with Bashir Gumel serving as secretary. Other members included Senate President Godswill Akpabio, House of Representatives Speaker Abbas Tajudeen, Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister of the Economy Wale Edun, oil magnate A.A. Rano, among others.
Abdulsamad Rabiu rejected his membership in the 34-member finance committee, and discontent among other committee members surfaced due to a perceived lack of prior consultation before their appointments were announced.
Following the NEC meeting of the party, Felix Morka revealed that the inauguration of the committees has been postponed until further notice. The reasons for this decision were not disclosed.
Additionally, the NWC condemned the attack on the Kogi State Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Dr. Gabriel Longpet, and called for a swift investigation by law enforcement authorities to bring the perpetrators to justice.
