Nigeria: Group Drums Support For Akpabio/Barau Candidacy For Senate Leadership 


By Longtong Yakubu, Kano

An All Progressive Congress, APC, support group, Tinubu/Danmodi Support Organization, has backed the APC National Working Committee’s zoning arrangement for the 10th National Assembly leadership.

The group in a statement signed by its National Director General, Pharm. Amed Gana Mohammed, who is also the Senior Special Assistant to APC National Youth Leader on Empowerment (North-west), noted that the arrangement is constitutional based on the Party’s provision for candidate to emerge through concensus for an elective position.

According to him, as members of the Party, they supported the choice of Sen. Godswill Akpabio (Akwa-Ibom) and Sen. Barau Jibrin (Kano) for Senate and deputy senate for the Senate House, as well as Hon. Abass Tajudden(Kaduna) and Hon. Ben Kalau (Abia) for Speaker and deputy Speaker for the House of representatives; pointing out that, the zoning arrangement is in the best interest of the party.

“We are aware that some members of the party are not comfortable with the NWC arrangement of the party, but they have not given us any tangible reason to question the zoning arrangement of the party, their agitation rather, has succeeded in making us conscious that within the party and in high places, there might be some elements that might not be progressive.

“Those who decide to go against the party’s zoning arrangement and question the arrangement are flashing the card of number of voters from some part of the country, they should know that the party recognizes and organizes support group as a structure and operates with it. The support group is where the silent majority of party members resides, who are fully in support of the party.

“The APC has the majority and also for the continuation of APC as the ruling party, so we  cannot sit back and watch some people rob us of our success and renewed hope of progress by derailing the party from the path of progress due to their individual or collective wishes, they should know that no individual or pressure group is greater than the party,” the statement added.
