APC: Internal challenges mar reconciliation

Hopes of reconciliation of chieftains of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, going into the 2019 general election as a united body are being dogged by the failure to establish a reconciliation committee as promised to drive the process.

The National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole recently promised to constitute a reconciliation committee to heal the acrimony that has divided the party since the conduct of the recent party primaries.

President Muhammadu Buhari had earlier in the year appointed a national leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to lead reconciliation efforts, but party officials said the committee died on arrival even as its existence has been overtaken by events.

In spite of Tinubu’s committee, Comrade Oshiomhole had days ago hinted of a possible resolve of the party to kickstart a fresh round of reconciliation ahead of the elections.

However, party officials told Vanguard Monday in Abuja that the committee had not been constituted for two reasons.

They cited the face-off between the party chairman and some stakeholders of the party as one of the reasons for the delay.
