Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara; and his deputy, Suleiman Lasun, have shunned the National Executive Committee meeting of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The two are currently the highest ranking members of the party in the legislature, following the decision of the Senate President Bukola Saraki to leave the party.

Saraki’s deputy, Ike Ekweremadu, is also a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) .

The National Chairman of APC, Adams Oshiomhole, related their explanations and apologies to the meeting.

Dogara and Lasun are among party leaders who have, at one point or another, voiced their displeasure with the happenings within the party.

Lasun was reportedly unhappy with the direct method adopted for the Osun Governorship Primary, which he lost.

The APC NEC is expected to announce a decision as to whether this system will be adopted for subsequent primaries.
