The two factions led by Mr Chinonso Obasi, and Mr Aruna kadiri, after a conciliatory meeting on Tuesday in Abuja, fixed May 3 to May 5, for the NANS 2018 convention, at a yet to be announced venue.

A resolution signed by Obasi and Kadiri, and made available to newsmen, said the parties agreed to set up convention planning committee.

The resolution said that the duo would henceforth be addressed as co-presidents, pending the emergence of new NANS leadership.

“We resolved to constitute a 60-man Convention Planning Committee (CPC), with the existing Kadiri’s list with an amended Obasi’s list, bringing in a co-chairman and co-secretary.

“Henceforth, the supporters of Kadiri, and Obasi, must abide by the resolutions and abstain from using foul language on one another,’’ the resolution stated.

Obasi was elected NANS President on July 19, 2016, at a convention held at Patani Stadium, Gombe, while Kadiri emerged President at a parallel convention, held on Sept. 4,  2016 at Old Parade Ground, Abuja.
