The Yobe State Governor and Chairman APC Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, His Excellency, Mai Mala Buni, has reiterated that Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State is the leader of the party in the state.
According to the Governor’s Director-General, Press and Media Affairs, Mamman Mohammed, Buni stated this Thursday when the APC stakeholders from Zamfara state, led by Senator Ahmed Yerima Bakura, paid him a courtesy call reassuring their loyalty to the party’s leadership.
He described the unity of the stakeholders as a good omen for the state and its people.
“When you are united, it makes the work of the party much easier in the state and l must say, l am impressed with the growing unity in the party in Zamfara State,” Buni said.
Senator Bakura said the party is growing stronger and uniting faster since the defection of Governor Bello Matawalle from PDP to APC last week.
He said there are negotiations still ongoing to foster more unity and cohesion in the party.
Bakura added that the party membership registration would be done openly to give room for everyone to be registered.
“I want to assure you that this time the registration would be done at every ward and not in anybody’s house” he assured.
The stakeholders include members of the National Assembly from Zamfara state, former deputy governors, members of the state Assembly, former ministers and party chieftains.
