Liman said:

“As far as the APC in Zamfara state is concerned, Senator Marafa remains suspended because, since 2019 we suspended him in accordance with the party's constitution, and our decision have been forward to the APC national headquarters, Abuja.
“We are calling on the national caretaker committee of the party to ratify his suspension.
“Therefore, members of the public should not regard him as a member of the APC.”

He described the recent comments by Senator Marafa as uncalled for, adding that the APC leadership should sanction the former lawmaker.

Liman said that the Zamfara state APC is strongly backing the national leadership of the party, commending the Governor Mai Bala Buni-led committee for repositioning the party.

In a related development, the Benue state chapter of the APC gave Okpoku Ogenyi 24 hours to withdraw some allegations he made against the Buni-led caretaker committee or be sanctioned.

Ogenyi who is a member of the party from Benue state had addressed a press conference where he made some allegations against the party leadership.

But in a statement signed on Saturday, November 7, by the Benue state chairman of the party Comrade Abba Yaro, he described Ogenyi as an impostor and a hired fifth-columnist.

Meanwhile, the APC has declared that the internal party crisis that rocked the party before the emergence of the caretaker committee distracted public attention from appreciating the achievements of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.

In a statement signed by its deputy national publicity secretary Yekini Nabena, on Sunday, November 8, the APC called on its members nationwide to support Governor Mai Mala Buni-led committee.
