Yobe State Governor and Chairman of the Caretaker Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Mai Mala Buni on Thursday led members of the committee to the former governor of Lagos State and National leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu in its bid to achieve reconciliation in the party.
As at the time of going to press, according to Buni’s spokesperson, Mamman Mohammed, the meeting was underway in a bid to chart a new course for the party.
“Those in attendance include Kebbi state Governor and chairman Progressives Governors Forum Sen. Abubakar Bagudu, Niger state Governor, Alh. Abubakar S. Bello and Lagos state Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu,” he disclosed.
The Committee had earlier met former interim Chairman of the party, Chief Bisi Akande.
The APC was thrown into leadership crisis following the suspension of Comrade Adams Oshiohmole as the National Chairman and the endorsement of Victor Giadom as Acting National Chairman for two weeks by a court.
However, majority of the National Working Committee (NWC) members appointed the ailing Deputy National Chairman, South, Sen. Abiola Ajimobi, as the Acting National Chairman.
The National Vice Chairman of South-South, Hilliard Eta, was subsequently appointed to act on his behalf. The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party, led by President Muhammadu Buhari dissolved the NWC and appointed Governor Buni as Chairman Caretaker/Extra-ordinary convention committee of the party.
