A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Sani Zauro, yesterday called on the Kebbi State’s party chairman and other stakeholders to setup a committee to reconcile all aggrieved members seeking elective positions in the state.
He made the appeal while addressing newsmen in his country home, Zauro; he said the only remedy to rescue the party was to ensure peace and harmony among the party’s supporters.
The elder statesman, who further said that APC as a party was built in the state by only two of them, himself and Sani Dododo, through the support of former Sokoto State governor, Aliyu Wamako, said they would not allow anyone to hijack the party.
“We don’t have any candidate for governorship position than Atiku Abubakar Bagudu; presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari while their senatorial candidate was Suleiman Arugungu. This is our arrangement for so long, we are not going to reverse it,” he added.
Zauro, who expressed dismay over allegations levelled against the people of his constituency that they were in support of Ibrahim Mera for the governorship election and another candidate for senatorial election, assured the Kebbi State government that people of Zauro were in support of his administration and were ready to fight for his return.
Our correspondent recalled that last year, all the party leaders agreed on the endorsement of President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Atiku Bagudu for second terms, but later Ibrahim Mera declared his intention to contest the governorship, while the party disowned him and he also later picked the senatorial form to contest against the present Chief of Staff to Governor Atiku Bagudu.
