Jigawa State Governor, Muhammad Badaru, on Friday, claimed that the ruling All Progressives Congress may lose the forthcoming elections in the state if the crisis in the party persists.
Badaru while speaking at the inauguration of the APC caretaker committee in Duste, state’s capital, said he would no longer tolerate any party member associating with factions in the state.
This is coming after the former APC Chairman in the state, Habibu Sara, was removed from office after a caucus meeting.
Sara was accused of being loyal to Sabo Nakudu, senator representing Jigawa central.
The governor asked the committee to be committed to the development of the party in the state.
“I will remain vigilant watching those of you going to meet with the other factional group, you have got enough of my patience, I will no longer tolerate that again.”
“It’s interesting to see Borno and Yobe, ever since, APC has been on the helm. Jigawa too, we need to take a lesson and be our brother’s keepers, so that we will continue to lead.”
“If we allow our personal interest to influence our collective interest, I am assuming we are going to lose and by then my tenure would have elapsed.”
“We are the responsible members of the party, I once sacrificed my governorship candidate to Hadejia emirate for sake of peace. However, God later made me the governor.”
