Governors under the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) will meet today in Abuja as part of efforts to resolve the crisis rocking the party, involving the National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
Nasarawa State Governor, Abdullahi Sule, disclosed this as a guest on a programme on Monday morning which was monitored in Lafia.
The APC Governors will also parley with President Muhammadu Buhari to seek his intervention, as leader of the party, with a view to finally resolving the crisis within the ruling party.
He dismissed claims that there was crisis in the APC, stressing however that there was misunderstanding within the party on the interpretation of the law.
He also admitted that there was a lingering crisis bedeviling the party in Edo State, involving the Governor of the state, Godwin Obaseki, and the National Chairman of the APC.
The Governor added that there was need to ensure that the crisis in Edo State is not allowed to snowball into the national structure of the party.
“We are having little misunderstandings within the party on the interpretation of the law and they are having some problems in Edo State between the government and the Chairman of the party.
“And the governors have done as much as they could. They met severally and even they could not be able to resolve it.
The problem has persisted but I don’t want that to be the problem of the party as a whole,” he stated.
Sule expressed hope that the meeting today will resolve the misunderstanding within the party.
“I am attending today’s meeting where all the Governors of the APC will sit down and look at this thing directly in the face and say; ‘what is your problem, what is your concern?’ “We cannot be divided.
And after that, we will go and meet our President and urge him as the leader of the party to intervene,” he added.
The governor rubbished the insinuations that the crisis within the party is caused by agitations for 2023.
