The factional leader of the All progressives Congress, APC, in Zamfara State, Sen. Kabiru Marafa, has faulted the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker Committee’s claim that the party crisis in the state had been resolved.
Recall that on Tuesday, Mr Buni had at the end of his Committee meeting had claimed that the crises in the Bauchi, Bayelsa, Cross River, Edo, Ekiti, Enugu, Zamfara, Ondo and Oyo state chapters of the party had been resolved.
Reacting through a statement on Thursday, Mr Marafa said Mr Buni’s claim was not correct.
According to him, the committee had not done anything to resolve the crisis in the state since its inception, insisting that the two factions of the party were still existing and operating parallel secretariat in Gusau, the state capital.
Mr Marafa said: “This ungodly claim by the committee would only worsen the crisis of the party in the state.”
He reiterated the commitment of his camp to fight for its rights and the rights of average Zamfara APC members.
He said, “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,” he stated.
