The National Reconciliation Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has excluded Oyo State in its visits to Southwestern States of the country, this newspaper reports.
A reliable party source exclusively told this paper that Senator Abdullahi Adamu-led national reconciliation committee would not be visiting Oyo State to meet feuding tendencies within the party.
According to the inside source, “We’re not coming to Oyo State because the only petition the national reconciliation committee received from APC leaders in Oyo State was written by some party members in Oriire Local Government Area. Instead, the committee will be meeting with some Oyo APC critical stakeholders in Osogbo on Monday, 10th January 2022”.
This paper reports that the National Reconciliation Committee has already met with party stakeholders in Lagos and Ogun States on Thursday and Friday respectively.
Recall that Governor Mai Mala Buni-led APC Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) had in October 2021 inaugurated a nine-member committee under the Chairmanship of Sen. Abdullahi Adamu (APC – Nasarawa West).
The committee’s mandate is to reconcile members who were aggrieved by the outcome of the party’s congresses.
The Chairman of the committee and former Nasarawa State Governor, Senator Adamu told journalists in Abuja that his team would ensure that all those involved in one misunderstanding or the other were reconciled before the national convention of the party.
Senator Adamu stated that his committee is expected to conclude its assignment by January 19, 2022.
The Reconciliation Committee Chairman thereafter presented a copy of petitions received so far to the governor.
Other members of the Committee are former governors Sullivan Chime, Ali Sa’ad Burnin-Kudu and ex-deputy governors Idiat Ranti Adebule, Suleiman Argungu and Moses Adeyemo, and Cross River State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Betta Edu and Dr. Samuel Jimba, who is the head of the secretariat.
