2019: APC youths accuse Wamakko, party chair of imposition

The Amalgamated Youth Organizations of All Progressives Congress in Sokoto have accused a former governor, Aliyu Wamakko and state chairman of the party, Alhaji Isa Sadiq Achida of plotting to impose an unpopular governorship candidate on the party.
Addressing a press conference at the secretariat of the Nigerian Union Journalists, Sokoto state council, the leader of the youth organization, Malam Umar Faruku, also accused Senator Wamakko of plotting to impose his political puppet, deputy governor of Sokoto state, Alhaji Ahmed Aliyu as the party’s flag bearer for the 2019 general elections against the wish of loyal party members.
Faruku noted with dismay that the APC chairman had shown bias by his conduct of accompanying the deputy governor to Abuja for the purchase of governorship nomination form while other members of the party purchased expression of interest forms for the contest of various positions in the state.
His words: “We are using this medium to inform the national leadership of our party of the activities of a prominent leader of the party in Sokoto which we perceive to be a conspiracy against the success of the party in the forthcoming elections.
“This is because his recent activities and that of the Sokoto APC chairman is an indication of a connivance to put forward an unpopular candidate for the governorship race in the state.
“The plan is to give the opposition in Sokoto a safe landing and further jeopardise the reelection of President Muhammadu Buhari in the state.
In fact, rumours are rife that the so called party leader is working with the opposition to ensure their success of which he is likely to join them after the 2019 elections,” he said.
