The governor of Yobe State and national chairman of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, CECPC, Mai Mala Buni, has approved a template to accommodate aggrieved members of the party in Kano.

According to the harmonisation template, “a bottom-top caucus” will be constituted at each of the 44 local government areas of the state.
“From the totality of the above conclusions, each side, taking into cognizance it’s strength, was tasked to articulate its position on how harmonization of party executives at all levels can be done in order to bring the two sides together as one family thereby achieving genuine and sustainable reconciliation.
