Also present are Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege; Deputy Speaker Idris Wase; House Leader, Hassan Dogowa and the Deputy Chief Whip, House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Nnenna Ukeje.
President Buhari had, on Wednesday, confirmed that he will be attending the National Executive Council meeting of the party called by a man who in the reckoning of the Majority of National Working Committee members no longer has a locus standi in the party as he has been suspended and his position in the NWC filled up.
President Buhari, however, stated that “the law is on the side of Victor Giadom as Acting National Chairman.”
