The Coalition Support Group of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) Northwest Zone, has nominated Hon. Abubakar Sadiq for a position in National Working Committee (MWC) of the party ahead of the forthcoming national convention slated for 26the March 2022.
The group which announced their decision during a press conference held in Kaduna weekend stated that Hon. Abubakar Sadiq, the former national youth leader representing kebbi state, has contributed enormously to the growth and development of the party in the zone more than any of those in the NWC.
The Zonal Chairman of the coalition Alh. Muazu Abdulhaman Labo who addressed the press disclosed that Kaduna, Kebbi, Jigawa and Zamfara States should be represented in the membership of the NWC and Non NWC of the party during the forthcoming convention.
He said, the over 360 membership of the coalition is appealing to stakeholders and governors of the northwest zone of APC to support the move, and micro-zoned the positions given to the zone for growth and success of the party in 2023 elections.
According to him, Hon Sadiq has done a lot for the success of the party in the previous presidential election in terms of organizing, mobilizing and empowering the youths in northwest zone more than youth leader from Yobe state.
The Coalition chairman also noted that a state under Sadiq`s zone, gave president Buhari and APC the highest votes that covers almost three states in other zones, saying given him NWC membership and Non NWC to others from the zone would serve as morale booster to do more.
Labo further stated that, right from 2013 to date, the four positions of NWC and six non NWC members in the zone have been occupied by people from Kano, Sokoto and Katsina states only as national treasurer, deputy national vice chairman among others without Kaduna, kebbi, Jigawa states and even Zamfara state.
He said the party needed vibrant people that would be part of the NWC like Hon. Sadiq and others that would moved to grassroots and brings their people to their great party,
“We have seen what Abubakar Sadiq has done and what he’s going to do more as NWC member of APC”, he said soliciting that four positions should be given to kaduna, kebbi, Jigawa and Zamfara states as NWC and non NWC respectively.
