Peaceful APC Ward Congress In Kano As Ganduje Charges Party Stakeholders To Remain United

From Maduabuchi Nmeribeh, Kano
Kano state Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has urged party stakeholders to ensure unity and accept the outcome of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Ward congress in the state in good faith.

Ganduje who described the exercise as faultless, also allayed fear of any legal action that could discredit the Congress.

According to him, “there is no fear because the Supreme Court ruling is referring to the Executive of our party at the national level. But we do not have Executive. What we have is Extraordinary Committee on Convention and Congresses all over the country,” he explained. 

Ganduje stated after the Ward Congress at his Ganduje Ward, in Dawakin Tofa Local Government Area, on  Saturday. 

He explained that, “what we have in place is an adhoc committee in charge of making arrangement for Convention and Congresses. Like what we have seen, what is going on now.”

“It was not an Executive National Committee of the ruling APC, but an extraordinary arrangement in order to ensure peaceful Convention and Congresses of our great party. So we have no fear at all.”

Ganduje recalled that even before the congress in Kano, “we had consensus to that effect. So we dont exercise any fear also.”

He further stated that, “the majority will always have their own and the minority will have their say, anyway. So there is no way you get a hundred percent consensus. 

“But then, what you have seen today, there is nobody who raises alarm over how we are peacefully conducting our affirmation exercise today.”

“So those who have complaints, their complaints will be entertained. There is an Appeal Committee, which is coming round. It will listen to those with any complaint.
“We are happy to witness this democratic exercise. This exercise is democracy in action. I also invite you, to be conscious of responsibilities vested in you.”

The representative of APC National Headquarters, Dr Tony commended the process in the state and urged all those officials to always stick to party’s philosophy. 
“I can see that election is conducted, consensus done and affirmation done also. We thank His Excellency the Governor for the process. I am happy to also see women participation in the process,” he said.

On his part the Chairman Congress Committee in Kano, former Speaker, State House of Assembly, Ya’u Abdullahi ‘Yan Shana revealed that, “all the 27 seats in the leadership of the party at Ganduje Ward, all seats were elected through consensus. The consensus was peaceful as I witnessed in all the places I visited today across the state.

 “Everywhere we visited there was mass turn out, just as we are seeing here. In all the 27 positions, each position was contested by only one person.”

 “We are happy to witness this democratic exercise. This exercise is democracy in action. I also invite you, to be conscious of responsibilities vested in you.”
Our Correspondent reports that party members turned out en masse to witness the exercise and endorse candidates who emerged under consensus arrangment.

At Yakassai Ward in Kano Municipal Local Government Area, where the state Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba hails from, party members in their large numbers were sighted in happy mood as the hailed and appreciated the candidates endorsed to run the affairs of the party in the area.
