The Nation reports that President Buhari said that any petition(s) about infractions in the party should be sent to appropriate agencies, not the DSS. Citing an anonymous source, the newspaper reports that the president has also appealed to those aggrieved among APC governors to sheathe the swords.

We expect peace to return to the party. There might also be some reconciliation within the substitution window allowed by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). “The president has however ordered DSS to avoid dabbling in party affairs. He said if there are petitions about any infraction, they should be sent to appropriate agencies. Buhari was worried that the same challenge which the DSS faced on the arrest of judges had re-occurred.” Meanwhile, previously reported that Oshiomhole, on Saturday, November 9, relieved his encounter with officials of the DSS recently.

The Cable reported Oshiomhole as saying he “saw DSS only once and it was a conversation, not an arrest or detention.” Oshiomhole added: “The conversation centred around APC primaries. The question now is whether or not it is the DSS job to interfere in a political party’s issues. “And if there’s an allegation of corruption, it is the responsibility of EFCC and ICPC.” The national chairman of the APC said he was not asked to report the following day as was speculated. He explained that he had to shift his travelling because of a meeting he had with President Buhari. ( -> .
