Northcentral region APC Caution Nyesom Wike, And More

The All Progressives Congress (APC) under the aegis of the Northcentral APC Forum has warned the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, against taking any actions that would be inimical to the interest of the party or the Northcentral region.….CONTINUE READING>>>>>

Speaking in Jos, the Plateau State capital, after an emergency meeting to assess the election tribunal judgements and how the APC has fared, the forum’s Chairman, Alhaji Saleh Mandung Zazzaga, said all hands must be on deck to ensure that the party performs well at the court, whether tribunal, appeal and Supreme Court.

The chairman said reports suggested that some appointive office holders like Wike were still playing double games, since he is part of the APC by appointment, while he still remains a member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), and that they gathered he is still backing the PDP in many of their endeavours and activities, particularly in the post-election cases in the court.

He said it is high time Wike came out clean and took a stand on the party he really belongs to, otherwise should his actions run contrary to that of the APC’s interest, they would not hesitate to initiate several actions against him, including legal action.

Otherwise, he said, as someone who is holding an appointive position of the APC, a lawyer and someone reputed for doggedly fighting political-legal battles right from Rivers State, he (Wike) should come out strong and be seen to be supporting and strategizing for victory for the candidates of the APC in the courts, at least in the Northcentral Region, under which the FCT falls.

Zazzaga further cautioned Wike against using his position as the FCT Minister to strategise for his 2027 presidential ambition as some people are peddling in some quarters, saying that their forum will be watchful to make sure that his loyalty to the nation, the APC and President Bola Tinubu is complete first, without engaging in any tactics for self-interest.

Also, the chairman advised Wike to be cautious in FCT demolition, land revocation and other administrative policies that will have negative outcome, as the North Central will be the first region to bear the brunt and take the full heat of any unpalatable occurrence in the FCT.

He said the region is already going through a lot of challenges, including security, and they would not want anything to further aggravate the situation.

He called on the APC leaders, supporters and members to support their candidates pursuing legal post-election matters in the courts so that they would come out victorious.

Zazzaga also urged Nigerians to support President Bola Tinubu, Secretary to Government of the Federation, George Akume, the ministers and those holding appointive positions so that they could excel in their responsibilities and deliver the dividends of democracy to the nation.….CONTINUE READING>>>>>
