According to the spokesman of the party, Dayo Adeyeye, the National Caretaker Committee of the party headed by Senator Ahmed Makarfi has been directed to inaugurate a standing disciplinary committee to address issues of the erring members.
He said that it was observed that indiscipline of some members contributed immensely to the crisis that rocked the party for 14 months and to curb such situation in the future, there is need to have a disciplinary committee to check the misbehavior of its members.
A source, however said that the NEC proposed that the sacked National Chairman of the party, Ali Modu-Sheriff be sanctioned along with some of his supporters, which include, the Deputy National Chairman Professor Wale Oladipo, the acting National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Bernard Mikko and Dr. Cairo Ojougboh.
The NEC also resolved to set up a reconciliation committee to broker peace among those who still nurse one grievance or another about the party.
Adeyeye also disclosed that the party might hold its national convention on August 12 in Abuja but that the convention would be non-elective so as to give the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC the statutory 21-working-day notice.
