Oyegun Sets Up Committee to Investigate Kaduna APC Crisis
The All Progressives Congress, (APC) National Working Committee (NWC) on Thursday set up a 3-man committee to look into the crisis rocking the Kaduna state chapter of the party.
The three-man committee to be led by the Deputy National Chairman (South), Engineer Segun Oni is ‘’to embark on a fact-finding mission to Kaduna State with a view to identifying the remote and immediate causes of the disagreement and the circumstance that led to the demolition of the house of Senator Hunkuyi.’’
A statement made available to newsmen by the party national publicity secretary, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi also mentioned the National Auditor, Chief George Moghalu and National Woman Leader, Hajia Rahmatu Alliyu, as members of the fact-finding team.
According to a statement issued by Malam Bolaji Abudullahi, the APC National Publicity Secretary, the decision to probe the crisis was taken at an executive session of the partys National Working Committee (NWC).
“The unfolding situation in Kaduna State is deeply regrettable and request all parties in the disagreement to maintain utmost decorum and give opportunity for true reconciliation”, he said.
The building housing the secretariat of a faction of the APC in Kaduna state, was recently demolished by the state government. The demolished building which is said to belong to Senator Sulaiman Hunkuyi is located at 11B Sambo road.
The Kaduna Geographic Information Services (KADGIS) in a statement explained that the building was demolished for flagrant violation of the land use and non-payment of ground rent since 2010.
The incident happened two weeks after Asiwaju Bola Tinubu was appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari to lead the APC consultation, reconciliation and confidence-building team. Tinubu’s assignment, among others, is to forge cohesion within the APC ahead of the 2019 general election.
It involves resolving disagreements among party members and leaders. It also involves reconciling political office holders in some APC-controlled states and addressing crises in the party`s chapters in Kano, Kogi, Kaduna, Bauchi, Cross River and other states.
The Kaduna state chapter of the APC had been factionalised and had been in crisis for close to two years.
