#RoadTo2023: Niger APC crisis deepens as Senators, Reps shun peace parley

Amid the crisis in the Niger chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senators and House of Representatives members shun Governor Sani Bello’s peace parley in Minna


The peace parley called by the Niger State Governor, Abubakar Sani Bello, to mend fences among aggrieved members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state has suffered a major setback.

The parley which is coming barely three weeks after the State Working Committee of the party had set up a reconciliatory committee headed by a former Minister of State for Mineral Resources, Abubakar Bawa Buwari.

Held at the Government House in Minna, only 7 out of the 11 House of Representatives members were present. The absence of the three Senators representing the state at the National Assembly; Senators Mohammed Sani Musa (Niger East), Senator Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi (Niger North), and Senator Ibrahim Bima (Niger South) as important stakeholders was noticeable.

During Governor Bello’s opening remark to those present at the meeting, comprising mainly his appointees, he admitted that some people were aggrieved, fuelling speculation that all was not well with the state chapter of the party.

He is said not to have stated any reason for the absence of the lawmakers but emphasised the necessity for the aggrieved members to put behind the results of the just concluded party primaries and push forward.

“Those who will lose have lost, and those who will win have won,” he added.
