The Executive Governor of Zamfara State, Hon. Bello Mohammed Matawalle has received a report of the committee charged with the responsibility to register members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the state.
The team, which was sent to the state from the APC National Secretariat, was headed by Alhaji Ibrahim Kabir Masari.
While handing over the report to the governor at the chamber of the Government House in Gusau, the state capital, Masari expressed happiness in the large turnout of members of the party for the registration, describing it as unprecedented and overwhelming.
He informed the governor that the exercise, though challenging, was hitch-free, smooth, and without any security breach.
According to him, a total of 1,020,800 members were registered and posted on the public domain through Google.
The team leader also reaffirmed Governor Matawalle as the party’s recognized leader in the state, pointing out that it is only those who are bent on bringing down the party that will not recognize the leader as provided in the party’s constitution.
He urged members of the party to shun any form of instigation that would bring division in the party and continue to rally around Governor Matawalle as their leader for the unity and progress of the party.
He extended the APC National Headquarters’ appreciation to the Governor for ensuring peace among members of the party in the state.
Receiving the document, the Governor, who commended the committee for a job well done, said under his stewardship, the APC in the state is now more united and peaceful.
Matawalle, who urged members of the party to always unite for the growth and development of the party and the state, said that he commended the APC National leadership and its National Secretariat for organizing the exercise, especially for uploading the list on Google to afford every member see that he or she has not been missed out.
Governor Matawalle also commended the people of the state for showing love and support to the APC and his administration which he noted is facilitating the delivery of the government’s policies and programs.
He assured the National Headquarters of the party that very soon, he would continue to receive more defectors from other political parties into the APC fold in the state.
