The national leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will, on Monday, unveil the template for sharing party positions between factions led by Kano State Government, Abdullahi Ganduje, and the Senator representing Kano Central, Ibrahim Shekarau.
The spokesman of Shekarau’s camp, Dr Sule Yau Sule, disclosed this in an interview with Daily Trust, on Sunday.
He said the action was the outcome of a Saturday night meeting held with the two camps.
The meeting was facilitated by the APC Caretaker and Extraordinary National Convention Planning Committee led by its chairman, Governor Mai Mala Buni; Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle; and former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara.
The meeting was put together to resolve the crisis rocking the ruling party in Kano State.
Also in attendance were Ganduje, Shekarau and his ally, Senator Barau Jibrin (Kano North), as well as Senator Kabiru Gaya, who is in the governor’s camp.
“We made our own position known and they made their own position known as well and now they have sat on the two positions and they said out of that they are coming up with a sharing formula which they said will be all-inclusive, which means all of us will be part of the excos.
“A high powered committee from the secretariat to be constituted and dispatched to Kano to ensure strict compliance and implementation of the template to be given on Monday,” Sule said.
Corroborating Sule’s position, Kano State Commissioner of Information, Muhammad Garba, said the party recognises the importance of peace in its Kano chapter and all the camps have agreed to allow peace to reign.
The crisis is already a subject of litigation, with the Shekarau’s camp winning an Abuja High Court.
Dissatisfied with the high court’s decision, Ganduje’s camp filed an appeal before the appellate court, which had heard the appeal and adjourned for ruling.
