The Chief Press Secretary to the APC National Chairman, Edwin Olofu, who made the disclosure in a statement in Abuja on Thursday night, said that APC National Secretariat was concerned about the unfortunate political situation in Ondo State.

According to him, to the party, if the situation in Ondo State is not quickly averted, may lead to further disaffection among party faithful.

Olofu stated, “Therefore, in order to avert the misunderstanding, and after critical observation of the situation, the National Secretariat has decided to wade in, with a view to foster better understanding that may likely lead to amicable resolution.

“The party therefore assures all and sundry, that through this Committee, it will interact and dialogue with all the stakeholders in the state based on mutual respect, with a view to finding a lasting solution.

“The National Secretariat urges all parties to remain calm, and extend all the necessary cooperation and support to the Masari-led Committee,” he stated.
