Faction asks APC headquarters to stop Zamfara EXCOs from parading as party leaders


The Aminu Sani Jaji faction of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has insisted that the Zamfara State party chairman, Tukur Umar Danfulani, and other members who were suspended by their wards due to an internal crisis remain suspended.

Speaking at a stakeholders meeting in Gusau, the state capital, Alhaji Isiyaku Ajiya Anka, who claimed to be the Acting Chairman of the APC in the state, said Danfulani and his group divided the party into different camps and denied other State Executive Committee members of the party their rights.

According to him, most members of the APC in the state were denied the chance of participating in the party’s activities.

Speaking further, he said, “It is in view of this that we called this stakeholders’ meeting in order to discuss issues for the unity and overall development of our great party in the state, as well as provide avenue for solving the problems and challenges currently facing the party in the state.

“We therefore want to call on the security agencies and the National Headquarters of our party to prevent these individuals from parading themselves as the leaders of the party henceforth.


“As you are aware, Zamfara State has been facing security challenges for years, in this regard, our party is always committed to supporting the government and all relevant agencies in addressing the security challenges in all parts of the state.

“We therefore appeal to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to as a matter of urgency, take all necessary measures towards fighting the menace of insecurity and other heinous crimes bedeviling the state.”

Anka added that the people of the state have raised serious concerns over the security situation in the area, hence the need for the President to act now so that the people can sleep with their two eyes closed.

“I want use this opportunity to call on party members to continue to pray for peace, progress and betterment of Zamfara State and offer special support, understanding and corporation to the new leadership pf the APC in the state.

“As the Acting Chairman of the party, I would like to assure you of my commitment to the success of the party’s unity, progress and wellbeing of all the members without discrimination, bias, favour or ill will towards any one.

“I affirm that, I would carry along everyone and I shall, Insha Allah, give you purposeful and strong leadership so that every member would feel that he belongs and is taken care of by my leadership.

“The APC in Zamfara under my watch shall be an example of good governance, integrity, probity and transparency with an open-door policy for every member.”
