The Reconciliation Committee set up by the All Progressives Congress has revealed that it has received no fewer than 170 petitions from aggrieved party members in Nigeria.
The Secretary of the committee, Senator John Enoh, revealed this on Monday, he noted that the outbreak of Coronavirus and the ban on interstate movements has hindered the panel from sitting.
Enoh added that President Muhammadu Buhari and governors under the party on Monday discussed on how to prevent the party from disintegrating.
Meanwhile, during the meeting of the President and APC governors, the crisis within the party were still ongoing, which means the crisis is far from being over.
APC is battling crises at the national level and state chapters such as Edo, Zamfara, Bayelsa, Rivers and Ondo.
Enoh added that because of the assignment before the committee, it can’t make use of the Internet to resolve the issues with aggrieved members.
In response to a question as to whether the committee had taken advantage of the Internet, Enoh said, “We tried that but it has not worked. As soon as it does, we will start. Our chairman (Chief Bisi Akande) is locked down in Osun State. We are just hoping now that flights will resume. If it is not certain that they will, we will have to see how to move around it and start.”
Asked if the committee had received additional petitions since the last time the panel met, he said, “Additional memos keep tickling in but not as many. We have about 170 memos from party members. We have our job cut out for us.”
