2019 Presidency!!! APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu, Receives Powerful Marching Order From President Muhammadu Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari, has ordered the National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, to reconcile all aggrieved party members across the country.

This disclosure was made by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, in a two-paragraph statement made available to Journalists, on Tuesday.

The statement reads: “As part of ongoing efforts to improve cohesion within the All Progressives Congress, President Muhammadu Buhari has designated Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to lead the consultation, reconciliation, and confidence-building efforts.

“The assignment will involve resolving disagreements among party members, party leadership and political office holders in some States of the Federation.”

The step, it is believed, is meant to put the party in better stead ahead of the Governorship elections holding in Ekiti and Osun States this year, as well as the 2019 general elections.

Prominent among the States where there are disagreements among APC Leaders and political office holders are: Kano, Oyo, Rivers, Kogi, Kaduna, Zamfara, and Osun States, among others.

In Kano, there is a disagreement between the State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, and his predecessor, Rabiu Kwankwaso.

Ganduje was Deputy Governor to Kwankwaso, who is now a Senator.

In Rivers State, there is also a disagreement between the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, and Senator Magnus Abe.

In Osun State, the Governor, Rauf Aregbesola, and the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yusuf Lasun, are also not in good terms.

Lasun is aspiring to become the State Governor after Aregbesola, whose tenure expires this year.

In Kaduna State, there is a crisis between the State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, and Senator Shehu Sani.

A similar scenario is playing out in Zamfara State, between the State Governor, Abdulaziz Yari, and Senator Kabir Marafa.

Also, in Kogi State, the State Governor, Yahaya Bello, is at loggerheads with Senator Dino Melaye.

In Oyo State, there is a friction between the State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, and the Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu.
