“I am confident that you have the capacity and all it takes to ensure the victory of the APC in the 2023 general elections”, Matawalle said.
He urged them to ensure that all electioneering activities were conducted within the ambit of the law and in line with the Electoral Act 2022 as amended.
Matawalle enjoined them to mobilise resources at their disposal and convey to the wider public the mission and vision of the APC Presidential Candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu to the people of Zamfara.
