The leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has decided to collaborate with President Muhammadu Buhari in finding a peaceful solution to the crisis that rocked the National Assembly over election of its principal officers.
The reconciliatory move by the party comes on the heels of the insistence by its loyal members in the National Assembly that the party must take measures to sanction all those involved in thwarting its decision on the choice of leadership of the legislative chambers.
It also came just as one of the key actors, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila said he has accepted the outcome of the election at the lower chamber of the federal legislature and will work with the new leadership.
Under the planned peace accord, termed, “Triangular Peace Template”, the party hopes to consult with the Presidency and National Assembly to fashion out acceptable measures to be implemented so as to enable peace to reign in the legislative chamber.
Speaking to journalists shortly after a meeting with the party leadership on Thursday, a member of House of Representatives, Sani Zoro, said the party does not want anything that will rock the boat or bring about rancour between the executive and the legislature in this dispensation and as such has asked its loyal members not to take any retaliatory action for now.
He said the party leadership has capacity to manage the crisis and that it has assured that it would work with the presidency and members in the National Assembly to come up with an acceptable peace template in a few days time.
