The chairman Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Itse Sagay has urged President Buhari not to participate in today’s All Progressives Congress (APC) National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting called by Victor Giadom.
Sagay said the ex-parte order Giadom is relying on to claim acting chairmanship had since lapsed.
He said: “I’m stunned by this turn of events. How can a deputy national secretary have the ambition to be the chairman of a party when you have deputy chairmen and vice-chairmen?
“That is why it is absurd. It does not make sense. His position makes it impossible for him to be the acting national chairman.
The legal advice the President got is mischievous in the extreme because there is no court order to extend since it does not exist. It died two weeks after it was made. The line of succession of the chairman cannot come from the Secretary.
So the whole thing is an absurdity. I always hear of the theatre of the absurd, but this is one of the worst I’ve ever heard of.”Asked if he would advise the President to reconsider his position, Sagay said: “That’s my view.
And as someone pointed out, seven days’ notice is needed for such a meeting. Only three days have been given.
