Although the registration was challenging, the committee chairman reaffirmed Matawalle as the party’s recognised leader in the state as provided in the party's constitution.
He went on to note that only those who don't recognise the governor as the APC leader in Zamfara are bent on bringing down the party.
Governor Matawalle on his part, commended the committee for a job well done, especially for uploading the list online so members have the opportunity to confirm they are not left out.
The Zamfara state governor urged members of the party to continue to come together for the growth, saying APC is more united and peaceful under his leadership.
