Marafa pledges to remain in APC, work for Buhari
One of the aspirants of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara State, Senator Kabiru Marafa, has vowed to remain in the party and work for President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election.
Marafa, in a statement in Abuja, said he would also remain in the party to fight what he called the injustice done to him and others during party’s governorship primary election in Zamfara State.
Marafa’s position came amidst speculation that some of the aggrieved APC governorship aspirants, including those from Zamfara, have perfected plans to move to other political parties.
“I will remain in the APC to support and lead President Buhari’s 2019 re-election campaign in Zamfara State and to ensure that Governor Yari fails woefully in his attempt to perpetrate injustice and impose his moles as candidates of the party in the state.
“The facts are clear that Gov. Yari has failed woefully and has lost the popular support of the people. He can’t win any election in Zamfara today, so he chose to hide under Federal might to perpetrate criminality. We say No to that. I am going to remain in the APC to ensure that he and his cohorts are effectively retired.
“We have come this far together with all the people of Zamfara State, they have expressed their desire for change; they have given us their maximum support, and they have rejected Yari and all his chosen candidates. They have sacrificed their lives and health, some were killed while many others were injured during the botched and make-believe primaries in the state”, he said.
Marafa, while thanking the people of the state for their support and cooperation, said his decision to remain in the APC, despite the pressure was in appreciation of their tremendous support and in their best interest.
