The All Progressives Congress (APC), Taraba State chapter, has commenced a move to reconcile all the aggrieved party members within the state.
The aggrieved members were on Thursday engaged in a dialogue with the leadership of the party in Jalingo, the state capital.
Following the outcome of the party’s primaries, some of the members threatened to pitch tents with opposition parties, a situation which had threatened the party’s hope of forming the next government in the state.
Speaking at the reconciliation meeting, the party’s state chairman, Barrister Ibrahim Tukur El-Sudi, said the move is geared towards ensuring victory for the party come the next general polls slated for next year.
He said reconciling all aggrieved members of the party after the primary election “is key pointing out that doing so would help in achieving victory at the next general elections.”
He expressed optimism that the move for reconciliation is the best and in the interest of the party’s success.
The party’s guber candidate, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha, applauded the party’s members for providing a level playing ground for the primary election.
He passionately appealed to all members of the party to put the issue of the primary elections behind them and forge ahead in unity to achieve success in the 2023 election.
He assured them that he has no grudge against anyone and urged all aggrieved members to sheath their swords and do away with every bickering.
Bwacha, who has been the incumbent senator representing Taraba South Senatorial District, told the members that the task ahead could only be achieved when they all come together as a force.
Some of the aggrieved members, who spoke with our correspondent, said they have resolved to put aside their differences for the party to actualize its dreams of wresting power from the ruling Peoples Democratic Party in the state.
