- The governorship candidate of APGA in the state, Alhaji Abdullahi Sani, disclosed this during the party’s flag-off campaign
- By their action, the Zamfara APGA have abandoned the party's presidential candidate, Mr. John Gbor
The Zamfara chapter of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has endorsed the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, President Muhammadu Buhari in the February 16 presidential election.
This was disclosed by the governorship candidate of APGA in the state, Alhaji Abdullahi Sani, during the party’s flag-off campaign in Gusau on Saturday, January 26.
Sani said the party was satisfied with President Buhari’s anti-corruption fight, his administration's way of tackling Nigeria's security challenges, job creation and agricultural policy.
He said these policies tallied with APGA action plans to change the state of nation’s socio-economic condition.
Sani's stance suggested that the Zamfara APGA have abandoned the party's presidential candidate, Mr. John Gbor.
Gbor, a retired general, is the presidential candidate of APGA, but seems to be struggling with his ambition even within his own party.
Speaking on his ambition, Sani said in addition to the provision of security to the state, his government would pay attention to healthcare and industrialisation.
He pledged to construct 147 maternity centres across the 14 local government areas of the state and three VVF centers, one in each senatorial district.
According to him, small scale industries will be established in each local government area to achieve full utilisation of resources and to enhance job opportunities.
Earlier in his remarks, the national chairman of APGA, Dr Victor Ikechukwu, who was represented by the national treasurer, Alhaji Ibrahim Kyafo, commended the orderly behaviour of the party faithful.
He urged the electorate to vote wisely to ensure that the state elect desirable leaders that would move it out of the current political mess.
He said APGA has a comprehensive blueprint that would transform the state and the country economically and politically.
Meanwhile, a group, Nigerian Traders For PMB (NTFPMB) have charged their members to mobilise their households, neighbours, and friends to support and vote for President Buhari in the forthcoming presidential elections in order to exceed its 10 million vote target.
The decision was reached at the NTFPMB leadership meeting held in Abuja recently.
A statement sent to Legit.ng by the national coordinator of the group, Prince Paul Ikonne, indicates that traders were reminded that based on the achievements of Buhari ranging from road infrastructure, security of life and property and more especially the Trader Moni initiative among many others, there is need for the president to be re-elected for the second term in order to consolidate on his achievements.
