A group known as the Coalition For Action in Re-building APC has called on the Gubernatorial candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party, NNPP, Senator Haliru Dauda Jika to return to the APC in the interest of the party in the state.
The Spokesman of the group, Umar Farouk Bala who stated this while addressing a press conference that held at the APC Secretariat in Bauchi, said that the main objective of the group is to unify the party and re-strategize against 2027, adding that the group was conceived out of the sudden abysmal performance of the party in the just concluded general elections where the party polled far below the number of both federal and State legislative Assembly seats it scored in 2019.
He said that the group consist of seasoned politicians that cut across Youth activists, Veteran political leaders of various strata, leaders of Civil Society Organizations, Youth and Women groups.
Umar said that the party decided to unite in order to initiate the clarion call to Senator Haliru Dauda Jika to kindly consider the vistaz of Bye-gone and make a U-turn to his party the APC, for a new beginning.
“We wholeheartedly respect and Honour Senator Haliru Dauda Jika rigth to his personal decision in politics.We wish to state categorically clear that, we do not share his decision of leaving the APC to the opposition party where he participated in the gubernatorial race of 2023.”
“This is because you cannot take part in the destruction of the house you built with sweat and hard labour.Dokaji happens to be one of the very few exceptional leaders whose contributions to APC is beyond measure.”
“We remain solidly and firmly on this noble initiation and continue to appeal to Dojakin Bauchi to persevere in Patience and come back home to partake in the effort of salvaging the soul of the party from dying.We will use all available machineries at our disposal to reach out to and take this matter to those who matter most in the affairs of APC nationally.”
“We are going to work assiduously along with our teeming supporters across the nooks and corners of the state for the success and victory of our party in future elections.We are hopeful that Haliru Dauda Jika will respect the dignity of innocent hardworking members of the APC who still feel the pain of missing his contributions to the party’s success, from it’s early days dearly.”
“We are still hopeful that our stolen mandate of various positions in the last elections which was characterized by election malpractices, will be reclaimed back by the court of competent jurisdiction, we believe the coming of Jika will help greatly in this respect.”
“We are extending our hands of friendship to all like minds to join us in this struggle for an egalitarian APC in the state devoid of any internal wrangling,” he said.
