Returnees who moved back to their native states in southern Nigeria -- including Akwa Ibom, Delta, Rivers, Ondo and Bayela -- have largely been ... left to their own devices, as political maneuverings stall almost every opportunity to resettle and reintegrate the returnees.
At a meeting of the party’s national executive committee at the end of last month, Magashule was, as a concession, given a 30-day grace period to ‘consult’ with former ANC leaders.
So far, he has used this time to campaign publicly and meet with supporters. He also told a meeting of the party’s provincial secretaries that he would not be suspended or disciplined.
Some supporters also threatened to stage a ‘national shutdown’ on Tuesday 6 April 2021, but this did not materialise.
