The All Progressives Congress (APC) has announced that its National Working Committee (NWC) will meet with the party’s caucus in the Senate on Tuesday, April 4.
This is part of the move by the party to resolve the growing rift between the upper legislative chamber and the executive arm led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
NAIJ.com reports that in a statement by the national publicity secretary, Malam Bolaji Abdullahi, the party said it was happy with the committee set up by President Muhammadu Buhari to re-examine the relationship with the National Assembly ahead of the meeting on Tuesday.
The meeting is headed by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and the party said it sees this as a step in the right direction, as it demonstrates President Buhari’s recognition of the paramount importance of the legislative institution in a democracy.
The party said it was renewing its commitment to ensure that the relationship between the two critical arms of government improved further.
It commended the National Assembly leadership for its maturity and pre-disposition to have all the issues resolved as quickly as possible in the interest of the party and the nation as a whole.
The party warned that it would not hesitate to take appropriate action against any member whose utterances or behaviours were capable of jeopardizing the peace initiatives or further worsening the existing situation.
