The meeting of the National Executive Council (NEC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) got underway this morning with President, Muhammadu Buhari cautioning leaders of the party against getting involved in unnecessary in- fighting that might cost it the hard-earned victory.
One noticeable thing at the opening of meeting, according to Thisday report, was the absence of leaders of the party from the South-west, including the former Lagos state governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, pioneer interim national Chairman of APC, Chief Bisi Akande and the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbanjo.
Thisday quoted Buhari who said the party may have won the battle but risk losing the war if the current squabbles were not urgently arrested.
He urged his party men,'particularly those embroiled in the crisis, to drop their personal ambition and selfish interests and join hands with one another to address the daunting task of delivering on the promises made to the people.
The President also harped on the need to respect the supremacy of the party through which the elected politicians got their mandate.
