Atiku Tinubu

Bola Tinubu, the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and Atiku Abubakar, former vice-president, are reportedly in a battle for the chairmanship of the party’s Board of Trustees, which would be chosen on March 22.

Daily Trust reports that members of the BoT are already forming queues behind two leaders of the ruling party.

Sources said the meeting would be used to choose both the chairman and secretary of the board, which is an advisory body of elders and leaders considered as the conscience of the party.

Chief Sam Nkire, a leader of the APC in Abia state, had already announced his interest to become the secretary of the APC’s BoT.

It is a sign that the first interim national chairman of the party, Chief Bisi Akande, may no longer participate in the party’s BoT chairmanship contest.

The party’s national chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, confirmed tomorrow’s meeting after resuming from a 10-day working break.

The APC has worked without an official BoT since the fusion of the different political parties in 2014 that gave rise to the ruling party, even as the BoT members have been appointed.

The two candidates who have intensified lobbying for the position are expected to meet with the national caucus of the party who would meet on March 21.
