The saying that the guilty are afraid holds true in the present political circumstance of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). By next week it would be clear whether the much talked about emergency meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party has something in store for the leaders and faithful.
If the meeting holds, the presence or otherwise of two main characters-the suspended National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole and the acting National Secretary, Chief Victor Giadom- would be of particular interest.
While the naysayers are making frantic efforts to see that the emergency meeting flops, those in support believe that the gathering of the NEC would put a stamp of authority on the legitimacy of the office of the acting National Secretary, Giadom, as the midwife of the emerging APC.
Situation and circumstances have thrown up Giadom into a huge historical responsibility for the ruling party. Prior to his present responsibility, Giadom had been in the shadows of the former National Secretary, the self-effacing Mai Malla Bunu, who resigned to contest and win the Yobe State governorship seat.
