Following a plea by Senator Danjuma Goje of Gombe Central, an All Progressives Congress reconciliation committee has arrived in Gombe State.
The group, led by Abdullahi Adamu, claimed they were in the state to have a firsthand look at the problems emerging in Gombe.
Adamu told reporters in the early hours of Friday that after Goje’s position is gathered, the committee will convey the necessary position to the national body.
He refuted claims that the party is in disarray, saying that the APC in Gombe is alive and well.
Adamu said, “We are on a mission to reconcile any perceived misunderstanding and conflicts in our great party, after advertisement in six national dailies and NTA advising that anybody that wants to reach us will be provided ways and means to do so.
“In Gombe, we received just one petition and the petition is from our colleague in the National Assembly, former governor of the state, Senator Danjuma Goje.
“We have reason to be fair to hear him and those that the complaint was directed at. Unfortunately for us, he is not with us here.”
Adamu stated that the committee would give Goje another chance to make his presentation to them.
Revealing the next course of action, Adamu said, “Because we want to be as fair as we can, we want to go out of our way to listen to distinguished Senator Danjuma Goje and give him an opportunity to come and address us as a committee.
“We will be taking together what his presentation will be and what we have seen and heard today and now see the advice to give to the party concerning the way out.”
When asked who is the party’s leader in the state, Adamu explained that the governor is in charge of the APC in the state, while the president is the party’s leader at the national level, with party executives handling day-to-day operations.
Also speaking, Gombe State Governor Muhammadu Yahaya praised the committee’s efforts to maintain harmony inside the party.
