The leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the South South geopolitical zone, has called for its zonal caucus meeting following the lingering power tussle between the National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki.

National Vice Chairman (South South), Hilliard Eta, who disclosed this in a public notice he personally signed, stated that the meeting was scheduled for today in Abuja.

Though, the agenda of the meeting was not stated, it was gathered that it was convened to reconcile the two warring groups in the Edo State chapter of the party.
