Anambra 2021: Al-Makura commends patriots for raising APC members’ consciousness

A former governor of Nasarawa state, Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, has commended All Progressives Congress (APC) Patriots Anambra for raising the consciousness of the party on credible primary election.

He is impressed that the Patriots are leading the charge to win the state in the November 6, 2021 elections.

Speaking during an engagement with the group weekend, Al-Makura praised the group “for raising the consciousness of the party, especially with its insistence on a free, credible and transparent process of choosing the party’s flag bearer.”

A statement signed by spokesman of APC Patriots, Anambra, Victor Afam Ogene said: “Al-Makura, who is aspiring to lead the APC as national chairman, noted that his ideas align with those of the Patriots, especially as it concerns the enthronement of a transparent process of choosing the party’s candidates in all elective positions.

“The former governor, who is currently representing Nasarawa South in the Senate, stated that now was the time for lovers of the infrastructural revolution of the Muhammadu Buhari administration to come together to protect his legacies.

“Earlier, during a scheduled visit to the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) Boss Mustapha, Ikedife had assured that “if the right things were done, particularly in choosing a flag bearer without rancour, Anambra would be up for the taking, by the APC.

“He reiterated that the party must, as a matter of duty, provide all the aspirants with a level playing field so that the most popular out of the lot would emerge.

“Responding, the SGF, who was represented by a Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to the president on Policy Development and Implementation, Ibrahim Bapetel Hassan, thanked the Patriots for their “selfless commitment in ensuring that the right things are done in the run up to the election.”
