Members of Caretaker Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday met with National Leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu at his residence in Bourdillon, Ikoyi.
The committee was led by Yobe Governor Mai Mala Buni and Chairman of Progressive Governor’s Forum Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu.
Others in the closed door meeting include Secretary of Caretaker Committee of APC , Senator Akpan Udo-Edehe and APC Campaign Committee for Edo Election as well as Lagos Governor Babajide Sanwo-olu.
The meeting which took place at Tinubu’s Bourdillon home in Ikoyi, was aimed at bringing peace to the crisis-ridden the party.
The meeting, it was learnt, was part of the ongoing reconciliatory move following recent leadership crisis in the party.
Recall that Tinubu had on Saturday showed support for the formation of an caretaker committee for the party as recommended by Nigeria President Muhammadu Buhari.
“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,” Tinubu said in a statement.
“President Muhammadu Buhari is much more than a mere beneficiary of the [APC] party.”
Tinubu’s statement was in reaction to claims that he had been marginalised by the leadership of the APC after it dissolved its national working committee on Thursday.
The APC dissolved its national working committee based on the recommendations of Buhari whom political critics said 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.
