Abuja - A fresh crisis is brewing in the All Progressives Congress (APC0.
The fresh crisis is over the sharing of positions on the boards of government parastatals and agencies, reports Guardian.
Trouble started after the national leadership of the party asked chairmen and vice chairmen of the 36 state chapters of the party to come up with a list of fifty nominees from their respective states that would form the pool of those to be considered for board appointments.

Rather than consult with other party members in their respective states , the chairmen and vice chairmen opted to submit the names of their cronies and relatives as their preferred nominees.
The situation was further compounded by claims that members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who recently defected to the APC and were keen on getting board appointments, induced some party chieftains with monies in a desperate bid to get on the list of the nominees for boards appointments.
The development led to series of complaints and petitions from aggrieved members of the party from across the country
The Presidency has already intervened in the crisis to prevent it from escalating.
A committee led by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal has been constituted to correct noticeable anomalies and hold due consultations with aggrieved members of the party in a bid to arrived at an amicable resolution on the issue.
