The two warring factions of the Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, have been reconciled through the efforts of the National Leader of the Action Congress of Nigeria, CAN, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
This reconciliation took place at a meeting in Abuja where the factions agreed to sheathe their swords and end the crisis rocking the party, especially in the interest in the newly-formed All Progressives Congress, APC.
The CPC, ANPP, ACN and APGA last Thursday merged to form the APC after a long merger talk between the parties.
Senator Rufai Hanga, the leader of one of the factions, said he was willing to withdraw his lawsuit.
Speaking with newsmen after meeting with the Hanga faction of the party, Tinubu said the formation of the ACP by four opposition parties was in the interest of the nation and the people.
“How do you ask a politician not to meet? We are meeting in the interest of our various objectives. To me, I am working in the interest of Nigeria and particularly in the interest of APC”.
On whether the newly formed party by the opposition would succeed, Tinubu said, “I am a committed individual and we are in a committed group sorrounded by people of vision, conviction and great commitment.
“It would succeed. Our rivals will not want it to succeed; that is part of the political intrigues and environment particularly in Africa, but we will work hard at it in the interest of this country”.
