The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan had listed other terms of reference in a statement signed by him.
His statement had read in part:
“whether there is any involvement of the ruling party in the decision taken by the members involved; “Where there are established reasons for taking the action by members, the committee should identify such so that the party can create mutual and political atmosphere for reasonable interaction with senators and House members” among others.
The Committee will be reporting to the NWC three weeks from the date of its inauguration. Professor Wale Oladipo will serve as the secretary of the committee, other members include former Deputy Senate President, Senator Ibrahim Mantu; Senator Stella Omu; Austin Opara; Senator Abdul Ningi; Mrs. Margaret Icheen, among others.
