In a bid to put an end to the crisis threatening to rock the All Progressives Congress (APC), members of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), governors of the party and the Senator Abdullahi Adamu-led National Working Committee (NWC) met on Wednesday.
Naija News reports that the governors meeting with the NWC and the PCC was held at the Buhari House national secretariat of the party.
Those at the meeting include Chairman of the APC Governors’ Forum, Abubakar Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi state.
Other governors at the meeting were Abdullahi Ganduje (Kano); Abubakar Badaru Mohammed (Jigawa); Simon Lalong (Plateau and Director General of the PCC): Abubakar Sani Bello (Niger) and Abdullahi Sule (Nasarawa).
A former National Chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and directors at the PCC were also at the meeting.
According to Vanguard, the meeting deliberated on the postponed zonal tour by the six National Vice Chairmen and also discussed modalities for the proposed “APC National Conference” which it intends to convene before the end of the year.
The meeting also deliberated on the composition of the campaign council.
The PCC directors present at the meeting and who had earlier met with some of the governors on Wednesday night, were said to have assured the NWC that all grey areas in the campaign council list have been addressed.
Speaking to newsmen after the meeting, Bagudu said; “What I will say is Governors of the APC, members of the presidential campaign council visited the Chairman and the NWC members to strategize and discuss on campaign and the chairman briefed us about the party and we appreciate how well our party has been doing in the polity.”
On whether APC Governors are displeased with the PCC as presently constituted, Bagudu said; “Governors are very very proud of our party. We are very very proud of our party leader, President Muhamadu Buhari. We are very proud of the conventions that produced both our national chairman and our presidential candidate in person of Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and the vice presidential candidate in the person of Kashim Shettima.
“We are very proud of the actions of the national chairman and the NWC. We are very proud of the actions of the Presidential Campaign Council.
“We are happy that we are discussing even though there was a list, and that was unfortunate, that is the campaign (council list) which the party would have announced. It was a mistake but I am happy that the party is solidly behind our candidate and whatever lists that have come out erroneously, we believe it will be sorted out”.
