- The reconciliation process in the All Progressives Congress has started
- Key officials suspended by the ruling party have been recalled back to the APC
- Reinstated national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, had vowed to pursue reconciliation after he got a reprieve from the Appeal Court
As part of its reconciliation efforts, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has lifted the suspension on some key officials.
Deputy national chairman, north, Senator Shani Lawan and the party's north-west national vice chairman, Inuwa Abudulkadir have been recalled.
The duo have been having a running battle with the reinstated national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole before now.
Speaking to journalists after a closed-door meeting of the National Working Committee (NWC) Tuesday, March 17 in Abuja, Oshiomhole declared that the crisis rocking the party was over.
The party chairman was in company of the acting national secretary, Victor Giadom and north-east national vice chairman, Salihu Mustapha, at the briefing.
Oshiomhole had earlier declared that the ruling party is not divided.
He said the APC is united and not divided and will be used as an instrument for the development of Nigeria.
According to him, parties that are pro-people usually have more challenges than conservative parties, adding that the APC remains strong.
The former Edo state governor also said he is willing to reconcile his style of leadership with that of other members of the party so they can work together.
Meanwhile, a recent media report has detailed how Oshiomhole retained his job as the national chairman of the APC despite huge opposition from some powerful party chieftains.
According to the report, the plot to oust Oshiomhole was foiled by some governors of the party sympathetic to his cause.
It was gathered that APC governors almost exchanged blows at their meeting in Abuja, which preceded their meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.
The meeting was for the APC governors to arrive at a position on Oshiomhole before proceeding to the Villa to meet with Buhari.
Recently, the newly sworn-in Imo state governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma, declared his support for Oshiomhole.
Speaking to journalists on Friday, March 13, in Owerri, the state capital, Governor Uzodinma said those calling for Oshiomhole’s removal will fail.
Similarly, members of the APC National Executive Committee from the south-south zone declared support for Oshiomhole on Sunday, March 15.
The group led by deputy Senate president, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege met in Abuja and passed a vote of confidence on the former Edo state governor.
