The National Working Committee, NWC, of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has appointed Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State to head a five-man committee to settle the rift between National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole and Edo State Governor Godwin Obasaki.
DAILY NIGERIAN reports that other members of the committee are: Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Masari; former governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi; former governor of Borno State and serving senator, Kashim Shettima and Ahmed Wadada (Secretary).
In a statement on Wednesday night, the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu, said the committee had been tasked to investigate the cause of the rift between the party leaders as well as the crisis in the state chapter.
According to the party spokesman, the committee would later present its findings to the appropriate organ of the party.
“The Committee is expected to meet with all disputing interests and present its findings to the party. You would recall that the party took a decision earlier in the week to constitute a committee of prominent party leaders on the lingering crisis in our party in Edo State.
“This marks another step in our party’s effort to find a lasting solution to the crisis and ensure our party comes out of it even stronger,” Mr Issa-Onilu said.
