The All Progressive Congress (APC) National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said that there was no differences to be sorted out in the party between him and any body or group.
He also said, “there is no crisis in the party, hence, no fight to reconcile.”
Tinubu, ( Jagaban of Borku) made the declaration shortly after a closed door meeting with the Chairman of the APC Caretaker Committee, Gov. Mai Mala Buni and other members of the committee who paid him a reconciliatory visit at his Bourdillon residence in Ikoyi, Lagos State.
Buni, also Governor of Yobe State, had led other members of the APC National Caretaker Committee to the Lagos meeting with Tinubu, being their first point of call since the Committee resumes duty last week.
Tinubu said “We have no differences to be sorted out in the APC; we just had consultation and it is how our party, the APC, would continue to be a progressive party,”
According to him, the committee is a consultation and not reconciliation committee since nobody is fighting anybody.
”There are instances when you disagree, but it doesn’t mean that you cannot discuss it over and be a good example in leadership and politics,” Tinubu said.
The former Lagos State governor also said that politics without seeming media crisis would be less interesting.
”But the question is, are we committed to building this party and Nigeria? That is what we are all about.
”We are steering the ship of our nation and our party in the right direction,” he said.
He said that the party leadership had trust and respect for the chairman of the caretaker committee and would support him to succeed for the party to continue in its progressive governance of the country.
The committee chairman, who led other members to the meeting, said that the meeting was part of the consultation the committee was making.
”You know the task before us is daunting, and we need guidance, experience and prayers from our leaders,” Buni said.
The host Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, expressed his pleasure to have his colleagues in the state.
”It’s been a very fruitful discussion we have had here this evening,” Sanwo-Olu said.
Other members of the committee in attendance included the Chairman of the Progressive Governor’s Forum, Gov. Abubakar Atiku Bagudu; Secretary of Caretaker Committee, APC, Sen. James Akpan Udoedehe and Niger State Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Bello.
