Former governor of Nasarawa state, Tanko Al-Makura has declared his intention to contest for APC National Chairmanship position.
Eko Hot Blog reports that the former governor of Nasarawa state, North Central Nigeria, Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, has declared his intention to contest for the national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the party’s forthcoming national convention.
Al-Makura made the declaration on Monday during grand finale of the local government chairmanship campaign of candidate of APC in Lafia local government area of the state at Lafia East Primary School.
He noted that his desire to contest for the national championship of the APC is borne out of his conviction to safeguard the good tenets of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
Al-Makura added that he is optimistic of becoming the national chairman of the party while recalling that he was one of those who participated in the merger exercise of the party and desire the position.
Al-Makura said, “I feel this time is auspicious and the venue of this grand finale is important. Today I take the opportunity of this grand finale to make a declaration about my aspiration to contest for the office of APC national chairman in the coming convention.
“I consider this important because this is my base, this is my Local government where my ward and even the zonal headquarters is. This is where my umbilical cord that gave rise to my political aspiration is”
“I, Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, wish to contest for the position of APC chairman. I am doing this to ensure cohesion, party unity and to ensure that those values and attributes that came with the emergence of the legacy parties have been kept alive.
“But because of our quest, desire to ensure unity of purpose, direction, focus and vision for every Nigerian, we came together to form APC, and abandoned all those primordial sentiments.
“I believe at this material time, people who should manage the affairs of this party are people who know where the party was coming from, where the party is going.”
