The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, on Tuesday said it would intervene in the ongoing face-off between the Senate and Comptroller General of Customs, Hameed Ali.
A statement by the party’s spokesman, Bolaji Abdullahi, said the national chairman of the party, John Oyegun, would lead the reconciliation parley.
“The All Progressives Congress (APC) has keenly observed the controversy that has trailed the invitation extended to the Comptroller General of The Nigerian Customs Service, Col. Hameed Ali (rtd) by the Senate,” said Mr Abdullahi.
“We have watched the issues with growing concern and the expectations that they would be resolved in a manner that would be agreeable to all the parties involved.
“However, we wish to state that at this point, we have found it necessary to intervene. Accordingly, the National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun will lead the party’s peace mission to the Leadership of the National Assembly and the concerned party member.
“We are confident that the party’s effort to broker peace would resolve the matter amicably.”
