The Former Governor of Zamfara State Abdulazeez Yari has expressed his willingness to reconcile the two major aggrieved factions (Marafa and Yari factions) as well as all the aggrieved members of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara State.
Yari who spoke on Tuesday at APC National Secretariat Abuja after a closed door meeting with Governor Mai Mala Buni led-National Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee concluded that he won’t hesitate to give peace a chance in as much as the other factions are ready co-operate.
Speaking further he said: “Reconciliation to some extent will need results but any reconciliation that would eventually mar the prospects of the party is of no point… We are ready to reconcile with everyone. But if everyone is ready for reconciliation we will know what is there, because we are doing this game since 1999 and by God’s grace we have been seeing the future of the party come 2023.
“We are supporting the Acting Chairman for any reconciliation, ranging from Zamfara to anywhere because we want our party to deliver”.
On the other hand, the Chairman of APC Taraba State chapter Hon Ibrahim El’Sudin has also led a delegation to the Party’s Secretariat to express satisfaction and appreciate the good works of the Buni led-Caretaker committee and also to table the problem facing the party in Taraba for a lasting solution.
He said: “The problems are in-house and the chairman has already assured us that he is going to tackle these issues”.
Responding to the journalists on the cause of the crisis in the party, El-Sudi therefore noted that the absence of the former Minister of Women Affairs, Hajia Aisha Alhassan (Mama Taraba) from the party, describing her exit as having no consequence on the fortunes of the APC.
“As you can see, all the movers and shakers of APC are behind me. So, one person can not destroy or do anything to APC. After all, when she moved to another party and contested, how many votes did she get? She got 16,000 plus votes. APC got over three hundred and forty-something thousand votes. So, her movement has not shaken APC in Taraba State. It is in the hearts of Tarabans that they want APC and they will continue to support APC”.
