The Nasarawa State Chairman All Progressive Congress,(APC), John Mamman added and said, “APC should be fair to the CPC and zone its National Chairmanship position to Nasarawa State.
I am not just appealing that the APC national chairmanship position should be zoned to the North Central, but it should be given to Nasarawa State.
“We are appealing to the entire leadership structure of our great party, that in it’s much-anticipated guideline for the forthcoming Extra-ordinary National Convention, they should consider zoning the office of the national chairman to the north-central, due to the strategic position the zone occupies in the political permutation of the country.
Also, the Speaker, Nasarawa state House of Assembly, Balarebe Abdullahi said “Senator Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, is not only a son of Nasarawa, but he is also a nationalist and an institution whose legacies and achievements in leadership are worthy of replication on a wider scale.
The speaker represented by the majority leader of the House of Assembly, Tanko Tunga, “It Is On This Note That A Larger Platform as “National Party Administration” must be viewed as an apt opportunity for Almakura’s gifts and capabilities to be tapped into and experienced for the greater benefit of the APC at all levels, its growth and entrenchment in the country at large.
He further reiterates strongly that an Al-Makura chairmanship of the APC, holds much good for the party’s fortunes come 2023 and going forward.
