All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kaduna State has endorsed the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Nasir El-Rufai in 2019. The chapter made the announcement at a stakeholders’ meeting with party leaders from the 255 electoral wards of the state. In attendance were El-Rufai, two senators from the state, members of the House of Representatives, State House of Assembly, and political appointees at both federal and state levels. Senator Shehu Sani, a vocal critic of El-Rufai, was absent. Acting state chairman, Shuaibu Idris, said party supremacy is a non-negotiable principle for members.
Idris warned that the party would sanction “members working against our progress and unity”. He said the leadership of the party would continue to embrace members who accept its discipline and uphold the APC manifesto. In his remark, El-Rufai thanked party leaders and members for the endorsement. He assured them that his administration remains committed to improving lives of the people. Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi charged members to work hard for unity of the party.
