Daily Trust - - DIGEST - By Abubakar Sadiq Isah

The leader of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) in Gwag­wal­ada Area Coun­cil, Al­haji Abubakar Jib­rin Giri, has said that the party re­mains in­tact de­spite los­ing the last coun­cil poll in the area.

Giri, who is also the chair­man that was un­seated dur­ing the poll, spoke to news­men af­ter he sum­moned the party’s stake­hold­ers meet­ing, in­clud­ing, ward ex­ec­u­tives at his Giri res­i­dence.

He said the de­ci­sion to sum­mon the stake­hold­ers and ex­ec­u­tives was to dis­pel rumours that some mem­bers from other po­lit­i­cal par­ties were plan­ning to join APC to dis­place its mem­bers.

“Some are say­ing peo­ple are com­ing to join APC in or­der to dis­place the orig­i­nal mem­bers, which is not true. I want to make it clear that APC in Gwag­wal­ada and its ex­ec­u­tives right to the ward level re­main in­tact,” he said.
