APC Kaduna State endorses Buhari, El-Rufai
The Kaduna State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Nasir el-Rufai for the 2019 elections.
The party said the endorsement was without prejudice to the right of other party members to seek the offices in 2019.
Rising from a stakeholders’ meeting with party officials from the 255 electoral wards on Saturday, the party resolved that there is only one APC leadership in Kaduna State under the leadership of its acting chairman, Alhaji Shuaibu Idris.
The resolutions, which were contained in a communiqué, also indicated that the stakeholders expressed satisfaction with the conduct of the July 29, 2017 delegates congress election in the state and affirmed the outcome of the said congress to the national headquarters of the party.
The stakeholders also resolved to pursue genuine reconciliation with aggrieved members who, despite their grievances, have shown deep commitment to the progress and stability of the party in the state.
Governor El-Rufai thanked party leaders and members and assured the meeting that the APC government of Kaduna State will not compromise on its commitment and dedication to improving education, health and security and infrastructure.
He apologised for any offense that any government or party official may have caused to any party member and stressed the need for members not to settle differences through media confrontation.
The state acting chairman, Alhaji Idris, who presided over the meeting, said party supremacy is non-negotiable, and affirmed that the party will discipline members working against the APC’s progress and unity.
