APC Convention: Security Agents Stop Sen. Marafa’s Faction Delegates

APC Convention: Security Agents Stop Sen. Marafa’s Faction Delegates

Marafa’s delegates, alongside thousands of his supporters from Zamfara State, besieged the venue of the convention at Eagle Square, Abuja

There was mild drama at the National Convention of the All Progressives Congress in Abuja as security operatives stopped Senator Kabiru Marafa’s faction from gaining entry into the venue of the convention.

Marafa’s delegates, alongside thousands of his supporters from Zamfara State, besieged the venue of the convention at Eagle Square, Abuja.

Addressing journalists over the ugly development, the Publicity Secretary of Marafa’s faction of the APC in Zamfara State, Muhammad Bello Bakyasuwa, explained that the faction fulfilled all the requirements to contest party’s positions, but it is quite unfortunate that they were denied from gaining entry to the convention venue.

Bakyasuwa said the APC faction under the State Chairman, Alhaji Surajo Garba Mai Katako Gusau, was the legal one for the convention.

He said: “We were elected in the parallel APC state congresses of 5th, 12th and 19th May, 2018 in Zamfara State.”
He however vowed to take appropriate action to seek redress on the issue.

He said: “We are in Abuja to witness this convention as Zamfara State National Convention Delegates and Supporters of Senator Kabir Garba Marafa for Governor of Zamfara State in 2019 and also supporters of President Muhammed Buhari for second term in 2019.

“We are here with all our delegates and over 1,000 supporters but we have been denied entry into the Eagle Square.

“So, we hereby appeal to our new national party leaders to be fair and recognize our faction as the legitimate APC leadership in Zamfare State.

“Our faction fulfilled all the requirements or contesting party positions, while the Abdullaziz Yari faction didn’t fulfil the requirements.

“The Governor Yari faction didn’t pay for the forms for contesting elections to party positions, but our own faction fulfilled all the conditions, including the payment for all the nomination forms.

“As you can see, we are the majority, but the security operatives stopped us from entering into the venue of the convention.

“Right now, we don’t know where our chairman is. “We will take appropriate action to seek redress.
“We are duly and legitimately elected executives of APC in Zamfara State.

“They stopped us because some of our supporters were wearing T-shirts with the photograph of our leader, Senator Kabir Garba Marafa.

“We wish to restate with serious emphasis the resolve of our faction to pursue all legitimate means of ensuring that justice and fairness is done to us by giving us our due recognition as the legislate APC leadership in Zamfara State.”
