The Senator representing Nasarawa South Senatorial zone Umaru Tanko Al-Makura has declared his intention to contest for the position of the All Progressives Congress National Chairmanship position.
Al-Makura made the declaration at the grand finale of the campaign for the local government chairmanship election in Lafia on Monday.
He said, “I Umaru Tanko Al-Makura wish to contest for the position of the National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC). I’m doing this with the sole intention to ensure party unity, to ensure cohesion, to ensure that those values and attributes that came with the emergence of the legacy parties are being kept alive.”
Al-Makura assured that if he becomes the APC National chairman, he will ensure equity, fairness, justice and that those supporters who had joined the party are given a sense of belonging and participation.
“As a matter of fact, I am one of those who participated in the merger exercise of APC.
“Because of our quest, desire to ensure unity of purpose, direction, focus and vision for every Nigerian, we came together to form APC and abandoned all primordial sentiments. I believe at this material time, people who should manage the affairs of this party are people who knew where the party was, where the party is coming from and where the party is heading to.”
