Muhammad Badaru, the governor of Jigawa, says that the Congress of All Progressives (APC) may lose the polls in 2023 in the state if the crisis in the party is not checked.
Speaking Friday at the inauguration of the APC transition committee in Duste, the state capital, Badar, who has twice been elected party governor, said he would no longer tolerate any APC members associating with factions in the state.
The board’s inauguration comes after Habibu Sara, a former APC in Jigawa, was removed from office after a meeting at the club.
Sara is accused of being loyal to Sabo Nakudu, the senator who represented Jigawa Central.
The governor requested that the board be committed to the development of the party in the country.
“I will continue to be vigilant watching those of you who meet with the other faction group. You have had enough of my patience, I will not tolerate it anymore,” he said.
“It’s interesting to see Born and Yobe, since then the APC has been at the helm. And Jigawa, we must take a lesson and be the guardians of our brothers, so we will continue to lead.
“If we allow our personal interest to affect our collective interest, I assure you that we will lose and by then my term would expire.
“We are responsible members of the party, I once sacrificed my candidate for governor in the emirate of Hadeji for peace. However, God later appointed me governor. “
