The National caucus of the All Progressives Congress, APC has dumped the Board of trustees model for the constitution of an Elders’ Council.
According to Dailypost, It consists of top party members constitutionally-mandated to provided advice and counsel to the leadership of the National Working Committee and staff.
But the APC’s decision to have an Elders’ Council may not be unconnected with the inability of the party to constitute a Board of Trustees over thy years. The new council will have 50 members.
The approval of the Elders’ Council was part of the decisions taken at the Caucus meeting of the party held at the Presidential Villa on Monday night.
