The All Progressives Congress, APC, has begun its National Executive Council, NEC, meeting in Abuja.
President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Adamu, are at the meeting.
It is the 11th meeting of the APC’s NEC.
Adamu said the meeting, the first the National Working Committee would be having with the NEC, would begin the process by uniting aggrieved members as well as discussing upcoming elections.
Adamu also encouraged members to uphold exemplary behaviours.
According to him, the party’s intrinsic problem was the crisis fueled by ego.
He noted that various egos within the party had widened the gaps between the former and serving governors and this posed a risk of causing a divide in the party and allowing members to suffer.
The National Chairman called for a discontinuation of the present rancour within the party because, according to him, there was no reason for the competition.
A Daily Post report said Adamu also asked the serving governors to work harmoniously and with mutual respect with their former governors, some of whom were now senators to resolve many of the inherent challenges.
The new watchword, he said, should be APC first.
He promised that the NWC would deliver, particularly with a united front.
He noted that contrary to predictions of dissolution, the party had emerged stronger.
He further urged members to desist from using the media to settle grievances but to resort to the constitutional provisions of the party for dispute resolution.
