OrderPaperToday – Senator Kabiru Garba Marafa who represented Zamfara Central senatorial district in the 8th Senate has faulted the claim by the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led caretaker committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) that the crisis rocking the Zamfara State chapter of the party has been resolved.
On Tuesday, the committee claimed they have been able to resolve the crises in the Bauchi, Bayelsa, Cross River, Edo, Ekiti, Enugu, Zamfara, Ondo and Oyo State chapters of the party in three months.
Reacting to this in a statement on Thursday, Marafa who lost out of the 2019 gubernatorial election due to the party crisis stated that nothing had been done in his state.
According to him, the two factions of Zamfara APC led by him and the former Governor, AbdulAziz Yari are still existing and operating parallel secretariat in Gusau, the state capital and across the 14 local government areas of the state.
The former Senator said: “This ungodly claim by the committee would only worsen the crisis of the party in the state. With this statement, the committee has deflated the trust and confidence reposed in it, by misleading the public with the claim that it has resolved the crises in the states mentioned.
“The committee has lost its integrity and its members should therefore resign or be sacked. This is nothing but a wicked lie. I pray that the committee is not on a mission to destroy the party completely.
“They have not done anything and have not contacted anybody; either by phone or letter, formally or informally. They are behaving as if Zamfara State does not exist and therefore doesn’t matter.”
