APC Governors, NWC on Collision Course over Convention Unity List



Barring any last minute deal, All Progressives Congress (APC) governors and the National Working Committee (NWC) may clash over the composition of a consensus list for aspirants to party offices at the national convention holding on Saturday.

THISDAY gathered that the presidency had struck a deal with the governors and other top leaders of the party to drop, from the consensus list, names of all outgoing national officers seeking re-election, except the National Secretary, Mai-Mala Buni.

It was, however, learnt that the proposal did not go down well with the affected NWC members who had threatened to stage a walkout at the convention if the decision was not reversed.

THISDAY also gathered from sources close to some governors that there were clashes of interests among them over those to support at the convention.
