…Call for urgent intervention in party crisis in the State
A Joint Stakeholders Forum of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano State, have petitioned the party over its congresses and called for urgent intervention in ‘APC crisis in the state’.
The group made the call in a petition to the APC National Chairman, Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee against the party leadership in the state.
The petition was jointly signed by Sen. Ibrahim Shekarau (Kano Central), Sen. Barau Jibrin (Kano North) and some House of Reps Members, and a copy made available on Wednesday.
In the petition, the group rejected the ward and local government congresses conducted in the state.
“We reject in totality, the purported congresses said to be carried out by the state party leadership at the Ward and Local Government levels in the entire state, because of its exclusiveness and flagrant violation of all known civilised norms, rules and party regulations.
“We want to assure the National Leadership of our support, cooperation and commitment to peaceful resolution of the crisis,” the group said.
They urged their supporters to remain calm and steadfast in their commitment to the ideals of the party. (NAN)
