Former spokesman for Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Laolu Akande, has called on President Bola Tinubu to set up a tripartite committee to solve communication issues in the All Progressives Congress.
Akande made the call while featuring as a guest on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily programme on Thursday.
He maintained that tripartite committee should be made up of members of the APC, the National Assembly and the Presidency.
He opined that it will help in solving communication challenges among the trio.
He said if a tripartite committee like the one established by ex-President Muhammadu Buhari and headed by Osinbajo was in place, the fears of some northern APC members in the National Assembly over the relocation of certain departments of the Central Bank of Nigeria and the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria would have been addressed.
Akande said, “What kind of communication is taking place within the APC about what the government is doing? There seems to be a disconnect because normally, there should be effective communication between the party and the government.
“I remember that there used to be a committee headed by the Vice President that was set up by the President that had the members of the Presidency, members of the party and members of the National Assembly that meet just so things can connect and there can be coordination.
“I think President Bola Tinubu needs to do. He needs to have a place where the Presidency, the National Assembly and the ruling party sit regularly to resolve things. That’s a form of communication that is missing right now.”
