Buhari Rejects Tenure Extension For APC National Chairman, Others

President Muhammadu Buhari has rejected the tenure extension of the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman and other elected state officials as illegal.

Addressing members of the National Executive Committee of the Party in Abuja on Tuesday, the President described the process as illegal.

He explained that after due consultation, it had become imperative to overturn the resolution of the February 27 NEC, which allowed the extension of the tenure of Mr Odigie-Oyegun by one year, on the ground that it contravened Article 17 Sub-section 1 of the Party constitution which recommends a 4-year tenure for all elected officials.

President Buhari further stated that the tenure extension contravened the

Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria which requires elected officials to present themselves for re-election after four years.

He, therefore, stressed the need for members to avoid constitutional infractions which could make the Party vulnerable to litigations.
