President of the Nigerian Senate, Ahmad Lawan has revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari’s will soon take action on the current turbulence in the All Progressive Congress, APC camp.
The senate leader revealed that he briefed the president on the happenings in the ruling party which demands an emergency response in other to avoid degeneration to bigger problems.
Lawan and President Buhari held a closed-door meeting on Sunday, June 21 at the State House, though the reason for their meeting was not disclosed, but the Senate president hints the president on the party’s recent drama, Naija News understands.
According to Lawan while discussing with news correspondent at the statehouse, he told the president why he needs to address the lingering challenges in the party.
He said, “But I also had the opportunity to talk to my President and my leader about the challenges in the APC.
“I believe that we have to deal with these challenges, this is the ruling party of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, with the President, with the control of the National Assembly, with more governors than any other political party. The situation should not, must not, be allowed to degenerate further than it has,”
He noted that there is a need to review the APC’s constitution and look deeply into addressing the setbacks. According to him, when the party is free of challenges, the country will as well be automatically stable.
“Because the party is supposed to be part of the apparatus of running the government. We are supposed to run or operate or implement or execute the manifesto of the party. And, therefore, the party is so key, so central, so essential to ensuring that government whether on the executive or legislative side continues to face those issues in the manifesto and of course the manifesto will be to make Nigeria better,” said Lawan.
He added, “So, I had the opportunity to discuss that with the President, who is the leader of the party in Nigeria and, by the grace of God, in the next few days, we will see certain actions which will be taken and we are praying that all our leaders in the party across the country will make every possible effort to get the party reconciled,”
Naija News understands that the ruling party has not been the same after the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as the National Chairman of the APC. There has been appointment and sacking rolling in the APC’s camp over its leadership.
