The All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Thursday night declared that there were no differences to be sorted out in the party.
This declaration was made shortly after a closed door meeting with Gov. Mai Mala Buni, Chairman of the APC Caretaker Committee, who led other committee members to Tinubu’s Bourdillon Residence in Ikoyi, Lagos.
The former Governor of Lagos State, who recently reacted to the decisions of President Buhari-led meeting of the APC’s National Working Committee (NWC) by affirming his relationship with the President 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,” he said.
According to him, the committee is a consultation and not reconciliation committee since nobody is fighting anybody.
“There is no crisis in the party, hence, no fight to reconcile.
”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,” Tinubu 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 ongoing consultations.
”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 Progressive Governor’s Forum, Gov. Abubakar Atiku Bagudu; Secretary of Caretaker Committee, APC, Sen. James Akpan Udo-Edehe and Niger State Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Bello.
