Senate Majority Leader Ahmed Lawan, says the appointment of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as “Chief Mediator’’ of the internal crisis within the All Progressives Congress (APC) by President Buhari, Lawan was `fantastic’ move.
He spoke at the opening ceremony for the two-day summit on national security organised by the Senate on the spate of killings by herdsmen and other crimes across the country.
According to him, the committee should have been constituted long time ago to reconcile all aggrieved members of the party.
“Fantastic! In fact that committee should have been constituted long time ago because APC is plagued by some internal issues and I believe that these are issues that are surmountable.
“The Tinubu committee will definitely add value into reconciling the warring sides so to speak.
“Time is against us, we have to really kick-start these processes of reconciliation immediately and I believe that as a family we should be able to come out very much united than we were before.’’
The Senate leader observed that the ongoing security summit organized by the National Assembly was a typical example of collaboration, cooperation and partnership between the executive and the legislature.
“We are so happy that this partnership is working,’’ he added.
