The All Progressives Congress (APC) has mapped out plans to restore peace in the ruling party to enable it to win the governorship elections in Edo and Ondo states as well as the 2023 general elections.
The chairman of the APC national caretaker committee, Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe state said the party will embark on a nationwide reconciliation to restore peace and cohesion among its members, The Nation reported.
The party on Monday, June 29, constituted members of its reconciliation committee at the APC national secretariat in Abuja.
The committee adopted a six-point working document aimed at repositioning the party at its inaugural meeting.
The party also approved the composition of the Edo state governorship national campaign council and the consultation/reconciliation committee.
Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo state appealed to party members to support the committee so that the APC's organs can be strengthened ahead of the 2023 elections.
Meanwhile, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo state, Kassim Afegbua, says he will not support Governor Godwin Obaseki's ambition to be re-elected for a second term in office.
Afegbua, a former spokesman to General Ibrahim Babangida, disclosed this on Monday, June 29 during an interview with Channels Television.
“At least I am bold enough to come out in the open and say that I will not support Obaseki. It would have been different if I was hiding or pretending to be supporting him and doing some damages,” he said.

He noted that his position on the governor is not borne out of greed, resentment or hatred, but based on the way he emerged as the PDP candidate in the party's primary election.
“My position on Obaseki is not borne out of desperation, greed or money politics. My position on Obaseki is borne out of the fact that there has to be a difference in the way and manner that democracy is run in this country.
“Someone cannot just join a party within 24 hours, you surrender every whims and caprice of the party to him and then you sit back and tell me that you are celebrating your Christmas early enough in the day,” he said
