President Muhammadu Buhari has recognised the leadership of Victor Giadom as the acting nation chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) according to a tweet by presidential media aide, Garba Shehu.
Buhari, Shehu said would also be attending a National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting called by Giadom to hold at the presidential villa on Thursday.
The APC has been in crisis since the Court of Appeal affirmed the suspension of Adam’s Oshiomhole as a member and chairman of the party.
While Giadom claimed the chairmanship of the party in Oshiomhole’s absence, the National Working Committee of the party named former Oyo governor, Abiola Ajimobi as acting chairman. Ajimobi is however hospitalised with COVID-19.
Shehu said on Wednesday that, “The President has received very convincing advice on the position of the law as far as the situation in the party is concerned and has determined that the law is on the side of Victor Giadom as Acting National Chairman.”
He said, “Because he will always act in accordance with the law, the President will be attending the virtual meeting Giadom called for tomorrow afternoon.”
