The reconciliation committee setup by the national leadership of the All Progressive Congress, APC, on the crisis in the Kano State chapter of the party said it would not recommend change of leadership of the State Executive Council.
Chairman of the three-member committee, Mamma Magoro, stated this on Tuesday after the committee met with Governor Abdullahi Ganduje at Government House, Kano.
The Kano APC was engulfed in crisis following the replacement of Haruna Doguwa with Abdullahi Abbas as state chairman. While Mr. Doguwa was a loyalist of former Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso, Mr. Abbas is a loyalist of current governor, Ganduje.
The APC in Kano is polarized along Kwankwaso and Ganduje factions.
“After our meeting, we will still write reports back to the office but I am assuring you that it will not alter the existing settings in the State because there is nothing wrong with it,” Mr. Magoro said.
Mr. Magoro said the committee was in the state to ensure that the APC returns to its strongest position before the 2015 elections.
“We are going to sit with all the warring factions and bring them back to the family fold so that they will continue to wax stronger like never before”.
Mr. Magoro said his committee would look at the process that brought Mr. Abbas to office and see if there was any breach of the party’s constitution with a view to proffering solutions.
