Politics APC To Replace BoT with Council of Elders To Avoid Tinubu, Atiku Clash



✅ NEW - car park, swimming pool, 24 hours light/security and more.
There is a clandestine move by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to replace the Board of Trustees (BoT) with ‘Council of Elders’.

This may be ratified during today’s National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the party.

A vote to amend the APC constitution to accommodate the new organ, Daily Trust reports, was taken at the Tuesday national caucus which held at the new banquet hall of the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja.

If the plan scales through, the NEC will ratify the nullification of the BoT and approve the constitution of a council of elders at national, zonal and state levels.

Such development means election of the BoT chairman, deputy chairman and secretary as well as the BoT meeting rescheduled for next week will no longer hold.

Atiku and Tinubu have been working round the clock to clinch the APC BoT chairmanship position.

Observers believe the move by the APC to scrap the BoT is to forestall bad blood among party bigwigs.
