National Women Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Betty Edu has revealed the rationale behind the decision of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party to temporarily cede its powers to the National Working Committee (NWC).

According to the women leader, the decision was to allow NWC work speedily in tandem with the timetable announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

She also noted that the delegation was set for 90 days in order to avoid back-and-forths between both committees regarding recommendations.

In her words: “We are working in tandem with INEC timetable to reach deadline while working with the party’s constitution. In order to deliver on the mandate, the NWC cannot afford to always liaise with the NEC in order to ratify decisions. This is why the NEC gave that approval for 90 days. After that 90 days, the NEC will look at the recommendations and decide therein.

“The fact that there is no specified date for an appeal in the wake of the May 30 presidential primaries doesn’t signify an allusion to consensus candidate. All these various issues will be sorted by the NWC as mandated and ratified by the NEC.”

Recall that The New Diplomat had reported that, NEC at its 11th meeting which held at Transcorp Hilton, Abuja, Wednesday, empowered the NWC to make unfettered decisions for the ruling party.
