The All Progressives Congress (APC) Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee may have jettisoned the Chief Bisi Akande-led National Reconciliation Committee that was earlier constituted by the then Adams Oshiomhole led National Working Committee.
The CECPC on Tuesday announced the constitution of a new nine – man reconciliation committee, headed by former Governor of Nasarawa state and now senator, Abdullahi Adamu
The nine-member Committee, which was contained in a statement issued by the Secretary of the Caretaker Committee, Senator John AkpanUdoedehe is coming in the heels of crisis and protests by several aggrieved members of the party, following the outcome of the ongoing APC congresses.
The sacked National Working Committee (NWC) members led by Comrade Adams Oshiomhole had in 2020 constituted a 12-member National Reconciliation Committee led by the former APC Interim National Chairman, Chief Bisi Akande.
The Oshiomhole National Reconciliation Committee had as members: Chief Bisi Akande (Chairman), Governor of Niger State, Abubakar Sani Bello, Governor of Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola, Senate Leader, Senator Yahaya Abdullahi, Deputy Speaker, House of Representatives, Hon. Ahmed Idris Wase, Sen. Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, Sen. Kashim Shettima, Minister of State for Environment, Sharon Ikeazor, Alh. Nasiru Aliko Koki, Sen. Khairat Gwadabe-Abdulrazak, Sen. Binta Garba, Sen. John Enoh (Secretary).
But the the committee as approved by the APC CECPC chairman, Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State has as members: Sen. Abdullahi Adamu – Chairman, Otunba Moses Alake Adeyemo – Secretary, Sen. George Akume, H.E. Sullivan Chime, H.E. Ali Saad Birnin kudu, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara, Alh. Suleiman Argungu, Dr. Mrs. Oluranti I. Adebule and Dr. Mrs. Beta Edu.
However, some party members have expressed concern over the composition of a National Reconciliation Committee by the Caretaker Committee when they are about rounding up their tenure.
