Governor Inuwa Yahaya on Wednesday, inaugurated the All Progressives Congress (APC) Reconciliation Committee in Gombe state.

The 21-member committee will be chaired by Dr Manassah Jatau, the deputy governor of the state.

Inaugurating the 21-member committee in Gombe, Yahaya charged the committee to resolve all differences among members towards ensuring a more united “family” as a party.

He said the committee was constituted to ensure that all members were carried along because in APC, “we are our brothers’ keepers.”

According to him, the exercise is in line with what other states have done or will do towards having one “united” and “solid family” that will deliver APC at all levels in the country.

“As humans whatever happens amongst us there must be some areas where we need to sort out and make sure that there is clear understanding between all our followers, contestants and the leadership of the party,” he said.

Meanwhile, the governor said with the calibre of members of the committee, he was optimistic that they would “dig through whatever problems we have and proffer solutions.”

Yahaya listed the terms of reference to include identifying aggrieved members of the APC, following the outcome of the last primary elections.

“Discuss with such members above with a view towards reconciliation; suggest possible realignment of such members’ compensation where necessary and suggest the avoidance of similar occurrences in the future,” he said.

However, he urged party members to learn to forgive and be more understanding in the interest of APC.

This, according to him, was to ensure that there were no loopholes for the opposition parties in the state to capitalise on ahead of the 2023 general election.

Speaking on behalf of the committee, Jatau appreciated Yahaya for the confidence reposed in them and assured the party leadership of their commitment to meeting their mandate.
