S’West APC Crisis Deepens as Peace Effort Suffers Setback



Efforts at resolving the intraparty crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the South-west have again faltered, THISDAY investigation has shown.

The National Peace and Reconciliation Committee (NPRC) set up to address concerns and grievance of those, who lost out in the party’s primaries held between September 29 and October 6 has so far been unable to persuade aggrieved members to sheathe their swords.

Except in the case of Lagos State, no governor of the South-west states attended the meeting of the six-man reconciliation committee, which kicked off on December 10 in Ekiti State and ended on December 12 in Lagos State.

Multiple sources at the reconciliation meetings, who spoke with THISDAY on the condition of anonymity, said most of the aggrieved aspirants threatened to work against the APC during the 2019 general election if the party failed to address diverse issues they had raised before the committee.
