The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has said the courtesy call on him by the party’s National Caretaker Committee was for consultation, not reconciliation.
He said there was no fight that needs reconciliation in the governing party.
“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.
Tinubu was answering questions from reporters after a close-door meeting with members of the APC Caretaker Committee at his residence in Bourdillon, Ikoyi, Lagos last night.
He said:”Nobody is fighting anybody, we have never been divided, there can be disagreement because not everybody is a zombie.
“There are instances when you disagree but it doesn’t mean that you can not discuss it over and be a good example in leadership and politics.”
Tinubu said politics without seeming media-created 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”.
He said the party leadership has trust and respect for the chairman of the caretaker committee and willing to support him to succeed for the party to continue in its progressive governance of the country.
Chairman of the committee who is also Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, who led other members to the meeting said the series of meetings were all part of the consultation “we are making.
“You know the task before us is daunting and we need guidance, experience and prayers from our leaders.”
Also answering questions, the host governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu said, ” I am a good host, I am happy to have my colleagues here, its been a very fruitful discussion we’ve had here this evening “.
Those in attendance at the meeting included the Chairman of Progressive Governor’s Forum, Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu, Secretary of the APC Caretaker Committee, Senator John Akpan Udo-Edehe and Governor Sanwo-Olu.
