The Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan, has revealed what Senators of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party discussed at a meeting held on Wednesday.
APC Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, was present at the meeting held at the Hearing Room One of the senate.
Addressing journalists shortly after the meeting, Lawan said the meeting bordered on ‘happenings’ within the party.
“The All Progressives Congress (APC) visited us this afternoon and we held about three-hour meeting and this is simply the father visiting his family. You know that the senate has APC majority and the APC National Working Committee wanted to have an interaction with APC senate caucus and it was a big privilege for all of us and an opportunity as well to discuss with our leaders.
“The purpose of that meeting was to review the happenings in the party across the country at all levels of government. We as members of the National Assembly would remain and continue to be committed to ensuring that we continue to support the change agenda of this current administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
“The party is the platform for all of us (legislature and executive). For in my view, the party has done so well by coming. Senators took turns to express the ways out of some of the issues that are bedeviling this party. I believe that it was worthwhile and a very frank discussion,” Lawan stated.
He also said that the lawmakers and the NWC agreed to set up a team, to interface among the various interests within the party.
“The party would soon constitute a team that would comprise of the executive, legislature, the party itself and the representation from our governors, up to 24 of them or more, with Ekiti coming to the kitty. So we are very happy as a caucus that the interaction was worthwhile and I am sure the party was also glad to be here with us this afternoon.
“Perhaps when you have everybody on the same page, then you will reduce the level of misunderstanding to the barest level.
“We as politicians from time to time have disagreements, but such disagreements should not be allowed to become a clog in the wheel of progress,” he added.
