Buhari, Osinbajo attend party's NEC meeting in Abuja

President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo are both present at the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the ruling party, the All Progressives’ Congress (APC).
The president arrived at the meeting at 11:19 am on Thursday, August 30, 2018, according to a report by Premium Times.
National chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, led the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) to the APC secretariat in Abuja where the meeting is taking place.

One of the key decisions expected to be taken at the meeting is whether to adopt direct or indirect methods for the party’s primary elections for the upcoming 2019 general elections.

While the party employed the indirect delegate system for the 2015 general elections, the direct method allows all registered party members to vote and has already been adopted for the Osun Governorship primary election.
