The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has suspended its former National Vice Chairman, South-south, and ex-acting factional Chairman Hilliard Eta.
The decision was part of resolutions taken during the NEC meeting which held at the Aso Rock Villa in Abuja on Tuesday.
According to reports, the decision to suspend Eta was based on his refusal to withdraw a suit filed against the party in court after the party leadership had instructed that all such cases be withdrawn.
Recall that following the NEC approval of Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni as the Chairman Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Committee of the party, the Hilliard Eta-led National Working Committee of APC kicked against its dissolution and eventually dragged the party before a court of law.
Eta was the National Vice Chairman, South-South during the leadership of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as the APC National Chairman before the tenure was dissolved by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party.
