Panic As APC summon its governors to Abuja for crucial meeting on Buhari's health, convention (Read More)

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has summoned its 23 state governors 
They are expected to attend a crucial meeting on Thursday, March 2
They are expected to discuss the health vacation of President Muhammadu Buhari among other issues 
A report by Vanguard indicates that the APC has summoned its 23 state governors for a crucial meeting in Abuja on Thursday, March 2.
According to the report, the party leadership and the state executives are expected to discuss on the state of the nation as well as its forthcoming non-elective national convention slated for April 29.
While some want the party leadership to wait for the President’s return, others say it should not be a big deal having Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, preside over the NEC meeting. 
The meeting would also seek the buy-in of the governors, many of who appear disinterested in the forthcoming national convention of the party because of its non-elective nature. 
‘’But because the convention is non-elective, it is natural for anyone to feel that there is nothing at stake for now, hence the seeming lack of interest,” the source explained. 
The meeting might also broach the issue of power equation in the event that the president becomes interminably indisposed.
The latest plan reportedly being hatched is to totally scrap the BoT and replace it with a leaner and more amenable body that would function in that capacity without enormous powers.
The BoT which serves as the eye and conscience of the party is to be replaced with a body under a suggested name of ‘Elders Forum.’
