*Bisi Akande likely to emerge
Ahead of next week’s crucial meeting of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Board of Trustees, the stakeholders of the party appear to have been polarised over who would be crowned as the Chairman of the board.
The National Chairman of APC, Chief John Oyegun, had said that the National Working Committee (NWC) has approved March 21 for the national caucus meeting, while the BOT and the NEC will take place on March 22nd 24 respectively.
Latest indications are that two zones, the South-west and North-east, have emerged hot favourites to secure the leadership of the most respected organ of the party.
Also, the leading candidates from the zones who are in race are the former interim national chairman of the APC, Chief Bisi Akande, and the former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar.
The present calculations are that because of the envisaged elderly role that the BoT members are expected to play, the leadership must not be allowed to emerge under a polarised atmosphere. ThisDay
