The leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will, on Monday, unveil the template for sharing party positions between factions led by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and the Senator representing Kano Central, Ibrahim Shekarau.
The spokesman of Shekarau’s camp, Dr Sule Yau Sule, disclosed this in a phone interview with Daily Trust on Sunday.
He said that was the outcome of a Saturday night meeting held with the two camps.
The meeting was organised by the APC Caretaker and Extraordinary National Convention Planning Committee led by its chairman, Governor Mai Mala Buni; Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle; and former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara.
The meeting was put together to resolve the crisis rocking the ruling party in Kano.
Also in attendance were Ganduje, Shekarau and his ally Senator Barau Jibrin (Kano North), as well as Senator Kabiru Gaya, who is in the governor’s camp.
“We made our own position and they made their own position and now they have sat on the two positions and they said out of that they are coming up with a sharing formula which they said will be all-inclusive, which means all of us will be part of the excos.”
“A high powered committee from the secretariat to be constituted and dispatched to Kano to ensure strict compliance and implementation of the template to be given on Monday,” Sule added.
Corroborating Sule’s position, Kano state commissioner of information, Muhammad Garba, said the party recognises the importance of peace in its Kano chapter and all the camps have agreed to allow peace to reign.
Daily Trust reports that the crisis is already a subject of litigation, with the Shekarau’s camp winning at the high court.
Dissatisfied with the high court’s decision, Ganduje’s camp filed an appeal before the appellate court, which had heard the appeal and adjourned for the ruling.
But with the parties seemingly coming to a truce administratively, it is not yet clear how the legal battle will pan out.
