Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that following the reconciliation of the two factions of APC in Zamfara state members have shelved their differences and collapsed the ruling party into one structure.
In light of this, Abdulazeez Yari, former Zamfara state governor, has been picked as the party's new state leader, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
Mikailu Barau, a chieftain of the party, made the disclosure in an 11-point resolution on Sunday, February 7, at the end of a meeting in Kaduna state.
In another report, Legit.ng reported that some chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have maintained that nothing would stop Governor Bello Matawalle's re-election in 2023 following the reconciliation between two factional groups of the APC in Zamfara state.
The PDP which is the ruling party in the state said the decision of the APC factions to unite would not affect its fortunes during the next general elections.
Some PDP loyalists who reacted to the development, however, said the reconciliation would not affect their party in the 2023 general elections.
