Following the election of President Bola Tinubu as the chairman of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), the All Progressives Congress (APC) has postponed its national caucus and National Executive Committee (NEC) meetings by one week.
The meetings, which were initially scheduled to be held on July 10 and 11 will now take place on July 18 and 19.
While the national caucus gathering will be convened at the presidential villa, party leaders will converge on Transcorp Hilton for the NEC sit-down the next day.
Iyiola Omisore, the APC’s national secretary, in a statement on Sunday, July 9, announced that the meetings were postponed because of the schedule of President Bola Tinubu, who has just been elected ECOWAS’ new boss.
The statement read in part:
“Members of the national caucus and national executive committee (NEC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) are hereby informed that our meetings of 10th and 11th of July, 2023, have been postponed to the 18th and 19th of July, 2023, respectively.
“The postponement is necessitated by the regional and sub-regional schedules and engagements of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR, as the new chairman of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).
“Inconveniences are regretted.”
