A group known as APC Political Alliance(APA), has warned that the political wrangling in the Kaduna State chapter of the APC and Governor Nasir Ahmed El-Rufai’s autocratic posture will make APC lose the seat of power of Kaduna State to opposition parties.
The group, which is made up of elders of repute, women, youth, and captains of industries who are members and sympathizers of the APC says, Governor El-Rufai’s stand to force an unpopular candidate on the people of Kaduna State will divide the party, and this will make it difficult for the party to win elections in 2023.
Speaking with journalists in Kaduna, the group’s spokesman, Alhaji Shehu Abdullahi Mustapha, says, the governor in recent months is compelling the APC state executives to anoint a candidate.
Among those Governor El-Rufia is projecting is a Senator and one of his commissioners, a decision which the group says is not accepted by the majority of the party members, party executives across the state and the general public.
Alhaji Shehu called on President Muhammadu Buhari and other national leaders of the APC to call Governor El-Rufai to order to save the fortunes of the party in Kaduna State.
APC Political Alliance (APA) Kaduna State says, for the party to win in the 2023 general elections, the national leaders should compel Governor El-Rufai to allow the most popular candidate who is selected by the majority of the party members and delegates to emerge as governorship candidate.
