The Edo State Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Anselm Ojezua has backed President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision on the extension of John Odigie Oyegun’s tenure as the party’s National Chairman.
Buhari on Tuesday shocked members of the National Executive Committee, NEC, of his party when he called for the cancellation of tenure extension for party officials
Ojezua described President Buhari’s call as justified and democratic.
The APC national chairman hails from Edo State.
Ojezua told Punch that “while there had been speculation over the plan to extend the tenure of elected national and state officials of the party, such a decision would be illegal as it was not backed by the party ’s constitution.
“What the President said is justified; that is democracy at work.”
