‘Team work nec­es­sary for APC’s sur­vival in Kaduna’

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Chris­tiana T. Alabi, Kaduna

Stal­warts of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) in Kaduna must change the neg­a­tive nar­ra­tive about Gover­nor Nasir el-Ru­fai’s ad­min­is­tra­tion and work as a team for the party to sur­vive be­yond 2019, an ex-law­maker, Mo­hammed Ali, has said.

Ali, who rep­re­sented Kawo Con­stituency in the Kaduna State House of As­sem­bly, de­scribed the al­leged aban­don­ing of mem­bers, “whose po­lit­i­cal en­gi­neer­ing con­trib­uted to the suc­cess of the present govern­ment at the polls as an act that is not only dis­turb­ing, but has frag­mented the party into two camps.”

At present, there is APC Akida, led by the likes of Dr. Ha­keem Baba-Ahmed, Al­haji Ah­madu Yaro Co­ca­cola and Tom Maiyashi on the one hand and sev­eral oth­ers loyal to Gover­nor El-Ru­fai.

Ali, who is also the founder of Cen­tre for Hu­man Re­source De­vel­op­ment and Em­pow­er­ment Ini­tia­tive, in Kaduna, said: “The essence of govern­ment or lead­er­ship in ev­ery hu­man so­ci­ety is to be able to cre­ate the en­abling en­vi­ron­ment for the fa­cil­i­ta­tion of good life. The party sys­tem came into be­ing aris­ing from the need to give peo­ple the free­dom and the power of choice.
