The members of Caretaker Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC), led by its chairman, Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni are help a closed door meeting with National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu (BAT) at his Bourdillon residence, Ikoyi, Lagos.
The meeting attended by other stake holders (Secretary of Caretaker Committee of APC, Senator Akpan Udo-Edehe and APC Campaign Committee for Edo Election, Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-olu) was part of the tools deployed to mediate on the internal wrangling in the party.
The meeting, which started at 9pm snowballed into later night, as part of the ongoing reconciliatory move following recent leadership crisis in the party.
BAT had on Saturday showed support for the formation of a caretaker committee for the party as recommended by Nigeria President Muhammadu Buhari (PMB).
He said: “The President has spoken and his decision has been accepted. It is now beholden on all of us, as members of the APC, to recommit ourselves to the ideals and principles on which our party was founded. President Muhammadu Buhari is much more than a mere beneficiary of the [APC] party”.
Asiwaju’s statement was in reaction to words that he had been marginalised by the leadership of the APC after it dissolved its national working committee on Thursday.
The ruling party dissolved its national working committee based on the recommendations of Buhari whom political pundits theorised allegedly plotted cutting down on Tinubu’s influence in the party.
Buhari also called for the immediate suspension of all pending litigations involving the party and its members, as well as the ratification of the party’s governorship primary election recently conducted in Edo State.
