APC stakeholders meet over Sokoto ministerial nominee
APC stakeholders in Sokoto State yesterday met the state’s ministerial nominee, Ms Aisha Abubakar, following another meeting by President Muhammadu Buhari with Sokoto State Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal and Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko over the ministerial slot of the state.
It would be recalled that the party stakeholders had earlier opposed her nomination.
But Governor Aminu Tambuwal’s spokesman, Imam Imam, quoted him as saying yesterday that the gathering was convened to brief the stakeholders on the outcome of his meeting with President Buhari.
He said Tambuwal who opened the meeting , added that as loyal and respected members of the party, it was only wise to give the members feedback and to admit Ms. Abubakar into their fold for further consultations.
“The outcome of the fruitful meeting will be communicated to the appropriate organs of the APC at state and national levels,” he said.
Among those at the meeting held at the Presidential Lodge in Sokoto, he added, were Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, National Vice Chairman of the APC in North West, Inuwa Abdulkadir, state executive committee members of the party, members of national and state assemblies and leaders of the party in the 23 local government areas of the state.
