Nigeria’s ruling party, All Progressives Congress, APC has agreed to address the issue of restructuring currently being demanded by many political groups and prominent individuals. It was gathered that the matter was discussed by the party’s leadership and governors in a meeting at the Imo Governor’s Lodge, Abuja, on Thursday.
The party leaders and governors resolved to set up a technical committee this week to handle affairs related to restructuring.
A governor at the meeting said that after the committee’s work, the party would summon another meeting to marshal out a way forward.
“Of course, we discussed the Anambra governorship election, especially the threat to the election by IPOB, and the leaders of the APC in the South-east who attended the meeting assured us that the boycott was not going to have any effect.”
The National Chairman of the APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, had after the meeting told newsmen:
“We discussed issues affecting the nation and the impact of the current wave of agitations across the country.We decided to strengthen the party. We decided that the kind of verbiage and incendiary statements by different groups were not good for the health of the nation and we decided that it had to stop
“For that reason, we have taken certain measures, which I will not disclose here, to ensure that the basic and fundamental unity of this country is preserved while at the same time listening to whatever grievances anybody has to say.”
The development has been received with much applause as it will end the various agitations of secession currently threatening the nation’s unity.
