- The Buni-led APC caretaker committee has met with the former interim national chairman of the party, Chief Bisi Akande
- The meeting was not unconnected with the crisis rocking the ruling party
- Akande was a former governor of Osun state
In its efforts to nip the crisis rocking the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the bud, members of the caretaker committee of the party have met with the former interim national chairman of the party, Chief Bisi Akande.
The Nation reports that Akande, who also chairs the party’s national reconciliation committee, was a former governor of Osun state.
Legit.ng gathered that a source said the chairman of the caretaker committee, Governor Mai Mala Buni, led a delegation to Ila Orangun, which is the country's home of Akande.
The source said: “The session was all about how to reconcile and reshape the party in the overall interest of all.
”Akande is more important because he heads a reconciliation committee that has received over 170 petitions. The committee went to debrief Akande in order to know where the shoes pinch in the party."
The meeting which lasted about an hour was said to have dwelled on the assignment given to the committee.
Governor Buni led other members of the committee that included the secretary, Senator Akpan Udoedehe; Osun state governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, and Governor of Niger state, Sani Bello to the meeting.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that former Lagos state governor, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, dismissed insinuations that the dissolution of the APC National Working Committee (NWC) ended his purported 2023 presidential ambition.
It was reported that Tinubu said he is taking advantage of his political connections to offer policy ideas, both privately and publicly, where he thinks he might help.
He noted that he will continue in that trajectory for the immediate future, adding, “2023 will answer its own questions in due time.”
The respected Lagos politician said he has toiled for the APC and have no problem with making personal sacrifices for the ruling party.
According to him, as long as the party remains true to its progressive, democratic creed, he is ready to make such sacrifices whether now or in the future.
Tinubu has been a subject of mockery in the last few days as some political commentators say his 2023 presidential ambition has been quashed.
