The All Progressives Congress (APC) has fixed July 10 and 11 to hold its national caucus and national executive committee (NEC) meetings respectively.

Iyiola Omisore, national secretary of the APC, announced the dates in a notice on Tuesday.

The national secretary said the call for the sit-down was pursuant to articles 12.5 and 25.2(i) of the APC constitution.

Omisore said the president, vice-president, senate president, speaker of the house of representatives, national chairman, deputy chairs (north and south), national secretary, national legal adviser, national treasurer, national organising secretary, national youth leader, and national leader of persons living with disabilities are among those invited.

Former President Muhammadu Buhari and Yemi Osinbajo, the immediate past vice-president, are expected to be in attendance.

While the national caucus gathering will be held at the presidential villa, party leaders will converge on Transcorp Hilton for the NEC meeting the next day.

Although the agenda is not yet known, TheCable understands that the meetings may provide avenues to resolve the various crises facing the party since the last elections.

There are feelers that the forum may also decide the fate of Abdullahi Adamu, national chairman, and Omisore, who have been accused of flouting the party’s constitution.

Salihu Lukman, vice-chairman of the APC in the north-west, has on several occasions accused Adamu of highhandedness.

Lukman has also challenged the national chairman and Omisore to declare the party’s finances.

In an open letter written in April, Lukman said Adamu would not be allowed to run the party as a sole proprietorship, adding that compliance with the APC constitution is sacrosanct.

These meetings will be the first for President Bola Tinubu and Vice President Kashim Shetimma since they were elected leaders of the country.

The last time the ruling party held these meetings was in the build-up to the general election. At the time, the party was looking at the possibility of having a consensus presidential candidate.
