A former Abia governor, Dr Orji Kalu has called on the National Leader of the All Progressive Congress ( APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to accelerate efforts toward reconciling aggrieved members of the ruling party.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Kalu made the call on Sunday night while speaking with newsmen at the Murtala Mohammed Airport, Lagos.
He said the task given by President Muhammadu Buhari to Tinubu was very apt because there was an urgent need to reconcile feuding members of the party.
According to him, the situation whereby a serving governor and a minister who belong to APC are engaged in bickering at a time concerted efforts are needed to return the party to victory in 2019 is not good.
Kalu said: “I have reported this to the highest authority of the party that it is not proper for a governor and minister in Ibadan to go two parallel ways.
“It is not to the benefit of the president and neither is it to the benefit of the party, it is not the benefit of Nigerians; the synergy needed to accelerate cohesion in the ruling party will not be there.
“I am confident Tinubu will be blunt to settle feuding members of the APC.”
