In a bid to resolve the crises rocking the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) at various levels, the party has set up a committee to reconcile aggrieved members.
According to a statement made available by the party's spokesperson, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, the committee has 10 members and is headed by the president of the Senate, Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan.
Issa-Onilu said the move was subsequent to the resolution of the party's National Executive Committee (NEC) on Friday, November 22.
Other committee members include Chief Bisi Akande (vice-chairman); deputy speaker, House of Representatives, Hon. Ahmed Idris Wase; Sen. Umaru Tanko Al-Makura; Sen. Kashim Shettima; minister of state for environment, Sharon Ikeazor; Alh. Nasiru Aliko Koki; Sen. Khairat Gwadabe-Abdulrazak; Sen. Binta Garba and Sen. John Enoh (secretary).

Issa-Onilu said the date for the inauguration would be announced to the members soon.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that a factional chairman of the APC in Edo state, Anselm Ojezua, said that the suspension of the national chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, was based on President Muhammadu Buhari’s admonition.
He claimed that the president said that any member who is not relevant in his ward, local government area and state should not be allowed to hold office at the national level.
Ojezua who stated this on Monday, December 17, while addressing a world press conference at the party's secretariat in Benin, traced the genesis of the crisis rocking the party to the conduct of primaries before the last general elections, where he claimed Oshiomhole unilaterally cancelled the primaries conducted by the leadership of the party in the state.
