Governor Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker/Extra-ordinary National Convention Planning Committee of the All Progressives Congress, on Monday in Abuja, set up a six-member committee to resolve the crisis rocking the Ekiti State chapter of the party.
Kaduna State Governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai, is the Chairman of the reconciliation committee while Ini Morgan is Secretary.
Already, Secretary of the APC National Caretaker Committee, Akpan Udoedehe, has inaugurated the panel on behalf of Buni at the party secretariat.
Other members of the reconciliation committee are Lawal Isa, Rochas Okorocha, Ahmed Wase, and Buba Marwa.
But Marwa and Okorocha did not attend the inauguration of the committee.
A copy of the letter of appointment of committee members read, “I have the pleasure to write and convey the approval of the Caretaker/Extraordinary Committee on your appointment into the Reconciliation Committee for APC in Ekiti State.
“It is our sincere belief that our party as a formally structured organisation based on rules should provide a platform for those in contestation to discuss; while realising that we must ensure the common goal which we all subscribe to, hence, this reconciliation committee.”
Ekiti State chapter of the APC, last week, became factionalised by crisis, which resulted in the suspension and counter suspension of party leaders by factions.
A faction of the party had suspended the Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Babafemi Ojudu; APC National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s son-in-law, Oyetunde Ojo, and nine others.
In response, their loyalists suspended Governor Kayode Fayemi and other party leaders loyal to him.
