President Muhammad Buhari on Friday described the APC reconciliation drive in Zamfara between Gov. Bello Matawalle, former governor Abdul’aziz Yari and Sen. Kabiru Marafa as a strong indicator of the party’s victory in the 2023 general elections.
Buhari stated this when he visited the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Office in Gusau, the state capital.
This is contained in a statement issued in Gusau by the state APC Publicity Secretary, Malam Yusuf Idris.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that Buhari, represented by the Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Prof. Isa Pantami, visited the state as a Special Guest for the closing ceremony of the 37th National Qur’anic Recitation Competition.
The event was organised by the Center for Islamic Studies, Usmanu Danfodiyo University, Sokoto.
Buhari expressed confidence in the APC led-administration in the state under Gov Matawalle.
The president was conducted round the edifice by the state Coordinator, APC presidential campaign council in the state, Marafa.
He commended the arrangement put in place to ensure APC’s victory in the 2023 general elections.
“The efforts jointly put in place by Matawalle, Yari and Marafa are highly commendable”, Buhari said.
He assured the people of the state that the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, if elected, would enact overwhelming transformation and sustain the achievements recorded by the Buhari-led administration in the last seven and a half years.
The president thanked the people of Zamfara and all Nigerians for their support given to his leadership and urged them to ensure APC’s victory at all levels in the 2023 polls.
Earlier while receiving the delegation, Matawalle said that Zamfara was the home base of the APC, adding that the opposition parties seemed to be non-existent in the state.
