Although the ongoing crisis in the All Progressives Congress does not seem to be ending soon, the party’s national leader has hinted what the Senate president, Bukola Saraki, and the speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, can do to pacify him.
Vanguard reports that the national leader is still not happy with Saraki and Dogara as he feels he was seen as unimportant when the pair went against his orders to place Senator Ahmed Lawan and Femi Gbajabimila as the APC candidates for the elections in the House.
There have been moves by some chieftains in the party make peace over the matter but an insider revealed that Tinubu wants both Saraki and Dogara to tender and publish a full page apology publicly in national dailies.
The source further said that an extended meeting of the national leaders of the party with APC governors involved had been fixed for next week. The meeting, it was learnt, would be held either Monday or Tuesday.
“You don’t joke with the man (Tinubu). He said they must make a public apology to him using the newspapers. A meeting that will involve all APC governors has been scheduled to hold either on Monday or Tuesday. Wait and see what will happen. They have to do it”, the source said.
Meanwhile, the Senate and the APC might face another round of crisis over principal positions in the upper chamber.
