APC national chair: Youth endorse Al-Makura

As the All Progressives Congress (APC) gets set to commence congresses nationwide to elect officials of the party, Youth Progressives Forum (APCYPF) has endorsed a former governor of Nassarawa state and senator representing Nassarawa north zone, Umar Tanko Almakura, for the position of national chairman.

The forum led by its national chairman, Honourable Ukkasha Hamza Rahama, announced the endorsement while addressing journalists in Bauchi.

He said Almakura as an experienced politician and peace builder can lead the party to victory in the next 2023 elections.

Buttressing his points, Ukkasha recalled that Almakura was the only governorship candidate that won election in 2011 under the platform of the Congress for Progressives Change (CPC) defeating the then incumbent governor, Akwe Doma, which marked the beginning of regrouping of other political parties to form the present ruling APC.

“As the 2023 election is fast approaching, the ruling APC must take holistic decision in the overall interest of its members and Nigerians as a whole by supporting the emergence of Umaru Almakura as the next APC national chairman to stop the party from collapsing after the exit of president Buhari.

“The fundamental task before the ruling party is to reconcile its aggrieved members, win elections and sustain President Buhari’s policies and programmes after 2023,” he said.
