President Muhammadu Buhari has saddled a national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, with the responsibility of reconciling all aggrieved party members across the country.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, disclosed this in a two-paragraph statement made available to journalists on Tuesday.
The statement read, “As part of ongoing efforts to improve cohesion within the All Progressives Congress, President Muhammadu Buhari has designated Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to lead the consultation, reconciliation and confidence-building efforts.
“The assignment will involve resolving disagreements among party members, party leadership and political office holders in some states of the federation.”
The step, it is believed, is meant to put the party in better stead ahead of the governorship elections holding in Ekiti and Osun states this year as well as the 2019 general elections.
However, prominent among the states where there are disagreements among the APC leaders and political office holders are Kano, Oyo, Rivers, Kogi, Kaduna, Zamfara and Osun among others.
