APC crisis heightens as Marafa’s faction conducts local government Congress in Zamfara


The All Progressive Congress (APC) under Senator Kabiru Garba Marafa’s faction on Saturday said it conducted parallel congress for the new executive of the party in all 14 local governments in Zamfara state.

This was made known by the state faction chairman of the APC known as APC mai jama’a, Alhaji Surajo Maikatako, stated this in an interview with Newsmen in Gusau shortly after the parallel congress.

According to him, the parallel congress was conducted peacefully.

He commended security agencies for the support given to them for the peaceful and hitch-free exercise.

Maikatako further alleged that the National leadership of the APC under the leadership of Mai Mala Buni had taken side for working with the state government.

He said immediately after the state APC congress, the faction will drag the national leadership of the party to court to challenge their action.

“When the congress has been concluded, we are going to challenge the APC national leadership for taking sides and ensure Senator Marafa’s faction elected executive are legitimate leaders of the party in Zamfara state,” Mai Katako said.
