Chief Nkire noted that others who also attended the APC BoT meeting on that day were the now President Muhammadu Buhari, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Chief Bisi Akande, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, Dr. Musa Rabiu Kwankwaso, Dr. Chris Ngige, Owelle Rochas Okorocha and Chief Tony Momoh, including serving and former civilian and military governors and many others.

“At the inception of the party the BoT meetings were attended by only statutory members, who included former presidents and vice presidents, former national chairmen of political parties which had produced governors or members of the National Assembly, former governors, civilian or military, with the national Chairman of the APC as its acting chairman.”

“The election of a substantive chairman of the board was delayed pending the nomination of more members from the 36 states and Abuja; which came soon after the general elections of 2015 which President Buhari of the APC won,” Nkire explained.

However, the statement stated that the party was in the process of renaming the BoT to Elders Council.

It therefore, added that, “Until that proposal gets the acclamation of the National Convention of the APC, the party’s Board of Trustees remains.”
