“Earlier today, I was at the Presidential Villa on a visit to His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari where we amongst other things discussed the crisis in our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC),” the top lawmaker said.

“I want to assure all members of the party that by the grace of God, in the next few days, we’ll see certain actions that would be taken to resolve the crisis. The current situation should not and must not be allowed to further degenerate than it has.

“I believe that we must go into the constitution of our party and see how we are to address the issues, but while we do this, we must not allow the situation to continue as it is today,” he added.
