The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress APC in Sokoto State Alhaji Usman Suleman Dan-Madanin Isa has said that the party will not continue to tolerate any act that could jeopardize her chances in making an impact in the next election in 2019.
The Chairman made the assertion in an exclusive interview with the press in the State capital over the weekend in response of the party over what ensued at the floor of the house of assembly recently leading to the removal of the Deputy House Leader Hon. Kabiru Ibrahim Kware recently.
Dan-Madanin Isa revealed that, the former deputy leader was accused of meeting with a perceived gubernatorial aspirant; Hon Faruk Malami Yabo in Abuja and went an extra-mile to commit the loyalty of the entire house to the aspirant of which the house unanimously kicked against.
He said, it was due to this development that the house opposed to such commitment and decided to relieve him of his post having lost confidence totally in his leadership ability.
Alhaji Isa stated that, the APC in Sokoto had also resolved to back the position of the house and warn the legislators not to indulge themselves in anything that will fragment the house and the party in due course.
He also said that, the house had been dominated by members from the same party, therefore there is no need for them to hold each other’s jugular in order to acquire worldly benefits in the name of backing one aspirant or anoother.
He said that since the INEC is yet to make an official pronouncement on lifting of campaign, it will be seen as trying to jump the gun or acting like a young antelope who dance herself lame before the main dance is yet to start.
The State APC Chairman was of the view that, since the State was created there has never been a governor that symbolizes patience and work in line with the principles and ideology of the people of the State as did Rt. Honourable Aminu Waziri Tambuwal.
He said a very good reflection of what happened in the recent past would give an insight to what is happening today.
According to him, Alhaji Attahiru Bafarawa Garkuwan Sokoto has served his two terms as governor and Alhaji Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko also served his two terms as governor of the State without hindrance, why then would anybody feel that Tambuwal is not eligible for such an honor from the people of the State.
“Governor Aminu Tambuwal is just clocking his two years in office remaining Six years and people have started grumbling is it because he is a patient bird or what?” he queried.
He therefore called on the people of the sate to remain peaceful and concentrate on their means of live hood and urged the political class to allow the sleeping dog lie and stop over heating the polity unnecessarily as that could distract the government from discharging her constitutional mandate to the people.
