The Segun Oni-led All Progressives Congress (APC) Committee on Kaduna chapter crisisÂ has given an assurance Â that the different factions will Â soon reconcile their differences as it begins Â a fact finding mission to the state on Sunday.
Oni, the Deputy National Chairman (South) of the APC, Â gave the assurance, when he addressed journalist shortly after he led other committee members to the site of the demolished factional secretariat of the party at 11B, Â Sambo Road,Â in Kaduna.
The APC stalwart said the committee was on a fact finding mission and its report would be used by the Bola Tinubu Presidential Committee to reconcile all aggrieved members of the party ahead of the 2019 general elections.
â€œLet me say that we are here on a fact finding mission; the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party is very concerned Â with the crisis rocking the party in the state.
â€œWe do not want acrimony within our family and we donâ€™t want a situation where some members will feel bad and aggrieved. That is why we are here.
â€œWe are also here to appeal to both sides or all the sides that you should sheathe your swords and give us time to put this report together,â€œ Oni said.
Oni, who apologised to the factional party leaders led by Sen. Â Suleiman Hunkuyi and owner of the demolished Secretariat building for arriving at the venue behind schedule, agreed to hold the meeting behind closed Â doorsÂ at 8p.m. yesterday.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that the committee Â billed to meet with the leadership of the Danladi Wada faction of the APC at its demolished secretariat by 11 a.m., arrived the venue at 3:41p.m.
The national headquarters of the APC had set up the committee Â following the demolition of the Kaduna APC factional office which was trailed by Â public outcry.
The committee chaired by Â OniÂ has asÂ members Â the partyâ€™s National Auditor, George Moghalu, Â and National Woman Leader, Rahmatu Alliyu.
Oni Â said on arrival that the committee would Â meet with Governor Nasir Â el-Rufai and later proceed Â to the residence Â of the partyâ€™s National Chairman, North-west Zone, Alhaji Inuwa Abdulkadir, whose house was also demolished by el-Rufai on April 6, 2017.
He appealed to the aggrieved party leadersÂ to allow peace to reign Â in the state.
Hunkuyi, who received the committee on arrival, Â told members of the committee how leaders of the party had waited for six hours before leaving the venue of the interface.
The federal lawmaker Â also informed the committee that Â while the chairman of the other faction was invited by the NWC for the next National Executive CommitteeÂ meeting, its own Â chairman (Danladi Wada) was not invited.
â€œIf there will be reconciliation, there should fairness and justice shown to all,â€œ Hunkyi said.
Earlier, Senator Shehu Sani (APC,Â Kaduna Central ) had addressed journalists on behalf of the group, insisting that the factional APC chairman, Wada,Â remains Â the authentic acting party chairman in the state.
Sani, who passed a vote of confidence on the Oni-led committee, however, Â left with other leaders of the party before the arrival of the visiting reconciliation team.
â€œThe notice was that they would here by 11:00 a.m. Â but all communication to hear from them has remainedÂ Â futile.
â€œ We still have confidence in the committee,â€ Sani said.
