All Progressives Congress National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, and some members of the APC National Working Committee are currently meeting with the Chief of Staff to the President, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari.
The meeting is taking place in the CoS’ office, Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Also at the meeting are the APC National Vice Chairman, North West, Inuwa Abdulkadir; National Treasurer, Adamu Panda, and two others.
A police orderly, also carrying office files, was seen escorting the APC National Chairman, Oshiomhole, to the meeting.
First News gathered that the meeting may not be unconnected with the crisis from the just concluded screening of aspirants for the governorship primaries of the party in Edo State scheduled for June 22.
The Screening Committeeof the APC had disqualified Governor Godwin Obaseki and two others in Abuja last week.
Governor Obaseki and Comrade Oshiomhole have been having a running battle over the control of the APC machinery in Edo and the governor’s second term bid, resulting in the factionalisation of the party in the state.
Late Chief of Staff to the President, Mallam Abba Kyari, had brokered peace between the two in the heat of the plot to remove Comrade Oshiomhole as the national Chairman around March.
