The National Working Committee (NWC)of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has met with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa on Wednesday and presented to him the party’s financial report.
Its National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole who led the team on the visit said the financial report detailed all collections by the party in respect of the February presidential election and how the monies were expanded.
Fielding questions from State House correspondents after the meeting with the President , Oshiomhole however declined to give details of the monies received by the party.
The APC boss told correspondents jocularly that as non card carrying members of the ruling party, they were not entitled to know anything about the party’s finance.
The meeting with Buhari was the first of such since the 2019 general elections were concluded.
Speaking also on the calls for revolution by the Global Coalition for Security and Democracy, and the clampdown of anti-government protesters last Monday, Oshiomhole, affirmed that Nigerians have the right to protest but must properly articulate their grievances.
He therefore condemned the Sahara Reporters publisher and Convener of the Coalition, Omoyele Sowore for spearheading the protests after failing to win the January 2019 presidential election.
The APC boss also disclosed that they meeting with the President also created an opportunity for them to raise issues on the need to restore the middle class in the country so as to stabilize the polity.
Oshiomhole equally stated that they impressed on the President the need to establish Progressives Institute in order to tutor party men and women on the ideals of the ruling APC.
