From Maiharaji Altine Gusau
Former Governor of Zamfara state, Alhaji Abdul Aziz Yari has called on APC members in the state to ignore those who are spreading rumors that, their membership card is no more valid.
Yari who addressed thousands of APC members at his resident in Talata-Mafara said, “Your membership cards are valid as far as the Constitution of our great party is concerned”.
“Forget about those who are going round, spreading rumors that, there is going to be new registration for anybody wishing to be a member of the APC in the state”.
“It is not true. Don’t ever listen to them. They are only trying to confuse you”.
Yari maintained that, the three-man committee which was said to have been appointed by the Mai Mala Buni’s led caretaker committee was only a temporary arrangement.
He added that, they have no constitutional power to even register new members of the party, talkless of cancelling the membership cards of the people they met in the party.
Yari stressed that, none of the three people who have been appointed as Caretaker Committee members has the APC membership card, adding that, it would be a violation of APC constitution if they insisted on registering new party members.
He informed his supporters that, the APC caretaker Committee members who have been in the party before the defection of Governor Bello Matawalle were still with their positions from the state, local government and ward levels.
He however explained that, officials of the party from both the old and the new APC would sit down after Eid El-Kabir celebration in order to come out with modalities that could take the party to greater heights.
