Governors serving under the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, last night raised two committees to “liaise with the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, Sen. Ahmed Lawan and members of the Unity Forum and Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila” as a way of finding an enduring solution to the crisis rocking the party at the National Assembly.
The immediate House of Reps Speaker, who is now the Governor of Sokoto State Aminu Tambuwal , has been made to head the three-man committee to fashion out amicable resolution of the crisis, while Governor Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State, an erstwhile Senator, was appointed the Chairman of another
three-man panel on the way forward for the Senate.
According to reports the six governors in the two panels “will meet with all the warring groups and agree on a win-win formula to put the crisis behind the party.”
They are expected to report to the APC Governors Forum later this week, after which an enlarged session of reconciliation will seal the deal.
The meeting was reported to be a part of the “broad consultations initiated by the APC governors.”
According to another insider, “The governors have also decided to involve state chairmen in finding a solution to the logjam at hand.
“The crisis runs through all the organs and strata of our party. This is why it was imperative to meet with the state chairmen of APC nationwide.”
