Oshiomhole: APC Governors Meet Today, To Seek Buhari’s Intervention
Governors under the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) will meet today in Abuja, as part of efforts to resolve the crisis rocking the party, involving the National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
Nasarawa State Governor, Engineer Abdullahi Sule disclosed this as a guest on Channels Television programme on Monday, monitored in Lafia.
The APC Governors will also parley with President Muhammadu Buhari later, to seek his intervention as leader of the party, with a view to finally resolving the crisis within the ruling party.
Engineer Sule dismissed claims that there was crisis in the APC, stressing however that there was misunderstanding within the party on the interpretation of the law, as well as the lingering crisis bedevilling the party in Edo State, involving the Governor of the state and the National Chairman of the APC.
The Governor added that there is every need to ensure that the crisis in Edo State is not imported into the party.
“We are having little misunderstandings within the party, on the interpretation of the law and they are having some problems in Edo State, between the government and the Chairman of the party.
“And the governors have done as much as they could. They met severally and even they could not be able to resolve it. The problem has persisted but I don’t want that to be the problem of the party as a whole,” he stated.
Engineer Sule expressed hope that the meeting today will resolve the misunderstanding within the party.
“I am attending today’s meeting, where all the Governors of the APC will sit down and look at this thing directly in the face and say, what is your problem, what is your concern?
“We cannot be divided. And after that, we will go and meet our President and urge him as the leader of the party to intervene,” he added.
On insinuations that the crisis within the party is as a result of agitations for 2023, the Governor emphasized that he refused to be distracted, having spent only a year in office, with how to develop Nasarawa State, his major concern.
