The Bayelsa state All Progressives Congress (APC), has inaugurated a 12-member reconciliation committee, to resolve the crisis within the party ahead of the 2019 general elections.

The crisis erupted in the party, following the outcome of the last governorship election, which was won by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Seriake Dickson.

APC was further divided after some members of the executive committee, led by its Chairman, Mr Tiwe Oruminighe, publicly disagreed with the defeated candidate of the party, Timipre Sylva, over federal appointments.

Oruminighe has therefore assembled 12 elders at the party secretariat in Yenagoa and mandated them to take appropriate measures to resolve the internal crisis of the party.
