The National Reconciliation Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Monday submitted its report, three months after inauguration.
The committee was inaugurated on October 12, 2021, by the party’s National Chairman and Yobe State Governor, Mai Mal Buni, to reconcile, harmonise and integrate members of the party in order to address seeming differences.
Receiving the report, of the Sen. Abdullahi Adamu-led APC National Reconciliation Committee, Buni, said the submission of the report is coming at a crucial period as the party approaches the National convention and the 2023 general elections.
Buni who was represented by a member of the CECPC and former Senate President, Ken Nnamani commended the Committee Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, and members of the committee.
He said: “You have painstakingly visited states where we have challenges and addressed them squarely. The great achievements the party has recorded in reconciling the differences among our stakeholders in Gombe, Ogun, Kwara, and many other states have justified the confidence the party has in your individual and collective capacities. You have truly done us proud.
“I wish to assure you that the Caretaker Committee will carefully study the report and implement the same to improve the unity and strength of the party”.
Chairman of the nine-member APC National Reconciliation Committee, Sen. Abdullahi Adamu, however requested for seven additional days to enable the committee attend to the various petitions before it.
“In all as of yesterday, we have received 47 petitions and you may wish to know that even this morning, there were people waiting for us to submit their petitions. We had promised Nigerians that we will do justice as humanly possible to everybody who is aggrieved through fair hearing and this is what we are doing.
“We had to come today to submit this interim because we are acting as boys scouts. A good scout obeys before complaints. So, we have been asked as of this morning to submit the report. We have submitted our interim report.
“Like we said when presenting the report, that there is still work to be done. Reconciliation is a work in progress. And we cannot pretend that we have taken care of every little thing that has come before us, but by the time the final report is ready, then we will be able to give you the actual report.
“As of today, we still have petitions coming in. People are still trooping in to come and see us and we cannot in all fairness stop them. Reconciliation is work in progress. Nobody will tell you that political conflicts that are based on ego in some cases, sometimes perception, none of us have control over that. Nobody has. So, we cannot stop them bringing their petitions but the first ones we get, we will do what we can to recommend to the party”, Adamu said
Adamu added that by the time the committee finally submits its report, it will be the job of the CECPC to impose sanctions on any member who refuses reconciliation efforts.
In another development, a group under the aegis of Ekiti forum today staged a protest at the All Progressive Congress APC National Secretariat in Abuja to call for the cancellation of the party primary that produced Biodun Oyebanji as the APC flag bearer for the forthcoming Ekiti State governorship elections.
