The governing All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday owned up to the notion that there is indeed a crack within its fold. Specifically, the party admitted that all the grievances expressed by leaders of the defunct new People Democratic Party (nPDP) were genuine. This was the outcome of yesterday’s meeting between the national leadership of the APC and members of the Abubakar Kawu Baraje-led faction of the nPDP The Baraje-led nPDP had a fortnight ago stormed the party’s national headquarters in Abuja where it demanded an urgent meeting with the leadership of the APC and President Muhammadu Buhari “within seven days” to address grievances, including alleged marginalization of its members. The nPDP submitted a four-page letter alleging that its members have been badly treated, sidelined and persecuted. Despite effort by a splinter group within the nPDP led by Senator Abdullahi Adamu to stop the party leadership from addressing the issues raised by the Baraje faction, the APC leaders met with the power bloc yesterday. After the meeting, which held at the national secretariat of the APC, the party revealed that a meeting between party leaders and

the presidency geared towards addressing the myriad of issues raised by the faction is underway.

Speaking after an hour of closed-door deliberations, the party’s deputy national chairman, Senator Shuaibu Lawal, who led other members of the National Working Committee (NWC) members to the meeting, said the party was taking up the disaffections seriously. Senator Shuaibu who stood in for the national chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, said, “We have not yet resolved. They wrote a letter to us; they are party men; they have grievances; we looked at the letter; their grievances are genuine. And they requested a meeting within seven days and before the seven days expired. I called them and they were not ready to come; they said we should shift the meeting till today, which we did. “So, we are listening to them. We have listened to them and we are taking up their matter seriously; we will address it. We don’t ignore our people except if you don’t send your grievances to the party, but if you send, we will always address your grievances.” On his part, leader of the nPDP, Baraje described yesterday’s meeting with the APC leadership as a good start and a good beginning.
