Agroup, Zamfara State Patriotic Association, has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari and elders of the All progressives Congress (APC) to save the party from the hands of some dark horses.
On Wednesday, the chairman of the group, Ibrahim Nabature, made the call while addressing a press conference in Gusau, Zamfara.
“There are some dark horses trying to destroy the party before the 2023 general elections if things do not go their way,” said Mr Nabature.
He further stated that the group had observed with dismay that some governors were bent on destroying APC, citing the crisis rocking the party in several states after their congresses as attempts to destroy the party.
The group’s chairman appealed to Mr Buhari and party elders to intervene and rescue the party.
“Alhaji Abdulaziz Yari, a foundation member of the APC, had at no time ever discussed or thought of leaving the party without the knowledge of his true supporters across the country,” he said.
Mr Nabature explained that Mr Yari’s faction of the APC was in court challenging the dissolution of the Lawal M. Liman-led caretaker committee in Zamfara.
“Therefore, he cannot abandon the party he helped to build for newcomers. It is the handwork of some forces who were his friends now turned enemies,” he added. “Yari had done so much for Zamfara and the APC in the state and at the national level.”
He fingered some governors, who he described as agents of destruction working to strangulate the party before the 2023 elections due to their selfish reasons.
The Governor Mai Mala Buni-led APC National Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee had dissolved the party executives shortly after Governor Bello Matawalle defected to the APC on June 29.
