The national working committee (NWC) of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has set up six reconciliation committees to heal the wounds inflicted on the party following the recent primary elections.
The APC primaries across several states have been controversial leading to calls for the resignation or removal of the party chairman, Adams Oshiomhole. Oshiomhole has, however, refused such calls, saying he has the support of majority members of the party.
The party chairman announced the committees on Monday while addressing journalists after the party’s National Working Committee meeting on Monday at the party’s national secretariat Abuja.
Each committee is expected to resolve the crises in a region of the country. Each committee is also headed by a state governor from a different zone from the one whose crises it wants to resolve.
Some of the governors heading the committees include Abdullah Ganduje of Kano, Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo and Rauf Aregbesola of Osun. Comparing the APC to other parties in terms of the crisis following party primaries, Oshiomole said he believes the APC is doing better than others despite its size.
