Zamfara State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has constituted an 11-man committee to investigate allegations committed by some of its members who engaged in anti-party activities during the 2023 general elections in the State.
The committee, which is headed by the party’s State Publicly Secretary, Mallam Yusuf Idris Gusau was inaugurated by the state chairman of the party, Hon. Tukur Umar Danfulani at the State Secretariat of the party on Wednesday, 17th May, 2023.
This was disclosed in a press statement issued to newsmen in Gusau, the State capital by the State publicity secretary, Mallam Yusuf Idris Gusau.
According to the statement, the party chairman charged the members to thoroughly study all allegations levelled against anyone, however highly placed in the party, to verify his/her level of involvement in anti-party and recommend measures to be taken against anyone found guilty.
The chairman, who said that already, the state Secretariat of the party is in possession of copies of petitions against some of the members, said the committee should handle its assignment without fear or favour in the best interest of the party and in accordance with the provisions of the party’s constitution.
Danfulani commended the doggedness of those who stood by the party and its candidates during the polls for their resilience despite the intimidations meted against them by overzealous red hand banded gun-wielding soldiers.
He assured that the party will reclaim the alleged stolen mandate which was deliberately robbed of the party by a cabal operating in the state.
The chairman further stated that the party will ensure justice to all its members at all levels.
He charged the committee to dig more and get correct information from wards, local government and state levels in order to have accurate information that will guide the party.
