President Muhammadu Buhari has thrown his weight behind the Chief Victor Giadom-led national leadership of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the latest twist on the crisis bedevilling the ruling party.
The president has now accepted to attend the National Executive Committee (NEC) summoned by the court-recognized acting National Chairman of the party.
Senior Special Assistant to the President (Media & Publicity), Garba Shehu, disclosed this on Wednesday in response to enquiries over the planned Wednesday NEC meeting to take place at the presidential villa, Abuja.
He said 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.
Shehu, however, urged the media to stop promoting manufactured controversies and to not give any further room for mischievous interpretations of the law on the matter.
The SSA media said the Giadom meeting will, hopefully, be attended by APC Governors and leaders of the National Assembly.
