We’ve made substantial progress, we hope to make total progress, that is what we are working at so that we can have one family, before we can start taking some far reaching decisions, as we do not want to take decisions that will excluded some members of the family.
“That is why we are taking time our to reconcile first, before we do any other thing,” he said.

“We are in Jigawa State as members of the reconciliation committee of the PDP to meet with our elder, Alhaji Sule Lamido, and discuss possible solution to the recent misunderstanding among our party members.
