APC Spends 2.5 bn on ‘Buhari House’


A former member Federal House of Representatives from Edo State, Patrick Obahiagbon, disclosed that the ruling All Progressive Congress APC, has bought the building that housed its national secretariat known as Buhari House. 

“I am also aware of and will wish to inform you all that when the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) came on board, the building currently housing the party’s national secretariat was on a lease.

“The previous National Executive Council (NEC) of the party had approved the purchase of the property at the cost of N2.5bn, out of which initial payment of N115million was made.

“I am glad to proudly inform you that the CECPC has concluded payment of the outstanding balance and has taken over the ownership of the building and has approved the naming of the secretariat ‘Buhari House’ in honour of the meritorious service of Mr President to both the party and the country,”

Mr. Obahiagbon, however, noted that; the party will deal with its 100 members who filed a suit in court against the CECPC.

“Disciplinary actions will have to start from the ward of such members and go to the local government and states before coming to the national secretariat.

“All I can tell you is that when all such activities are passed through the democratic rigours and get to the national secretariat, this CECPC under the leadership of Governor Buni will not shirk in its responsibility. His constitutional onus probandi will dispense justice to all manners of men without fear or favour and in a very transparent modus.”
