The matter of restructuring was tabled at a meeting of the party leadership and governors held on Thursday, June 29 at the Imo State Governor’s Lodge in Asokoro, Abuja.
According to This Day, a technical committee would be inaugurated this week and would comprise party leaders, some of its governors and National Assembly members.
The committee is expected to harmonise the position of the party on restructuring according to one of the governors present at the meeting.
The governor whose name was not revealed said: “Of course, we discussed the Anambra governorship election, especially the threat to the election by IPOB, and the leaders of the APC in the South-east who attended the meeting assured us that the boycott was not going to have any effect.”
The APC national chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun told newsmen: “We discussed issues affecting the nation and the impact of the current wave of agitations across the country."
He said the party had taken certain measure to ensure that the basic and fundamental unity of Nigeria is preserved while at the same time listening to whatever grievances anybody had to say.
