The Minister of State for Works and Housing, Engineer Abubakar Aliyu, has said that the ongoing All Progressive Congress
(APC) revalidation exercise would boost the party’s chance of winning election both at National, State as well as Local Government levels ahead of 2023.
The Minister stated this in Potiskum over the weekend after he revalidated his APC membership.
He said that the exercise was a great opportunity for new members to join the great party which he described as a moving ship.
Aliyu called on all party stakeholders in the state to come out enmass not only to revalidate their membership, but also to campaign for the party in the forth coming elections.
“Our Party is a moving ship, the Captain of the ship is President Muhammadu Buhari and the Executive Governor of Yobe State is the National Party Chairman, so I see no reason why the state will not remain APC State, ” he said.
Speaking further, Engr Aliu, said that it was pay back time for the state as the President had delivered on his campaign promises to Yobe State with the massive road projects that were ongoing and these projects had reached appreciable level of completion. “So do not only register, register and campaign for others to join the party”
Engr Aliyu also charged existing members of the party to be good ambassadors of the Party by being of good character and show love to others as this would encourage other people to join the APC.
Present at the validation exercise were critical stakeholders of APC in the State, the State Chairman of the Party, Alhaji Adami Abdu Chilariye and Chairman of APC (Potiskum), Bala Miss.
Also in attendance were, the Ward Chairman, Alhaji Iselu Tela, the Deputy Speaker of Yobe State House of Assembly, Honourable Anwalu Isa Bello and other stakeholders.
